So, I've been down on my job lately. But today I read this article on MSNBC:
The chance of dying in pregnancy/childbirth in an industrialized nation is 1 in 8,000.
The chance of dying in an unindustrialized nation is 1 in 76.
AND, the chance of dying in pregnancy/childbirth in Niger is one in seven.
ONE IN SEVEN.
Someday I'd like to go make a difference in statistics like this. Completely uncessary.
