I am going to point out that the most secular and peaceful countries with equal access to healthcare have less maternal mortality rates. The most religious, pro-life, and violent countries with more inequality to resources have more maternal mortality rates.
Scriptures from The Bible represent women being treated like submissive prey rather than with respect. Not women who are capable of fighting against abusive men, especially sociopathic, psychopathic, narcissistic, violent, and sexually predatory ones. Considering more men score higher in sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism, violence, sexual abuse, and lack of agreeableness than women on average, I am less likely to trust the Bible. So, I am less likely to trust the Catholic church. Hence, I am less likely to trust Catholic or Christian hospitals. Not that I think all men are purely evil perpetrators, though. Also, I don’t think all women are innocent victims. But I just know there are significant differences between people with XX and XY chromosomes regarding sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism, sexual abuse, violence, rape, crime, etc. I don’t think that gives the Bible an excuse to treat women like submissive prey to abusive men.
Now, this is why I’m pro-choice unlike some Catholic people are. Adults are more likely to build civilization. Children are less mentally and physically equipped with building civilization. Preventing maternal mortality will prevent poverty that usually causes illiteracy and crime in society. Parentless children usually don’t develop in healthy ways compared to ones who have been raised by loving and supportive parents. Preventing maternal mortality will prevent neglected children, poverty, illiteracy, and crime. Pro-life puts women’s lives in danger, though. Not all women’s bodies are designed for giving birth safely without them dying. From what I observed, countries with the least maternal mortality tend to be developed countries as a result, too. Because the significant reduction of maternal mortality makes society reduce the chance of neglected children that likely leads to no poverty that likely leads to no illiteracy nor crime.
