Down 50%: Death rate for women attempting procreation!

The number of maternal deaths worldwide dropped 43% between 1990 and 2015, says a report by the World Health Organization and World Bank. "Over the past 25 years, a woman's risk of dying from pregnancy-related causes has nearly halved," says Flavia Bustreo, WHO's assistant director-general for family, women's and children's health.
