I read this on Twitter earlier today and did a double take…

Did you read that as I did? 99% of pregnant mothers in developing countries die? I checked the source, a UN article, which stated:

Hundreds of thousands of women – 99% of them in the developing world – die annually as a result of pregnancy or childbirth.

That made more sense….

The article, btw, reports on the worldwide tragedy of child (under 5) and maternal mortality. While there has been improvement, here is the UN’s solution, per the piece:

“In Canada, I will urge leaders to support our global action plan on women’s and children’s health. In the 21st century, it is unacceptable that mothers should be dying during childbirth,” [UN Secretary-General] Mr. Ban [Ki-moon] told reporters…

Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, Executive Director of the UN Population Fund… stated. “Therefore, to speed up progress, we must invest more in reproductive health for women and girls. If every woman received reproductive health care, maternal death and disability would cease to be the devastatingly common tragedy it is today.”

President Bush, you may recall, refused to fund UNFPA because it promotes abortion, including coerced abortion in China, although President Obama restored the funding. So when UNFPA mentions “reproductive health,” it is code for abortion.
This is corroborated by analyzing the “global action plan on women’s and children’s health,” which calls to:

Fully integrate the following into all primary health-care facilities: family planning, HIV/AIDS services, abortion-related care (where legal), and maternal, newborn and child care.

It is insane to advocate killing children as a solution to childhood mortality.
