Sign the Petition: Maternal Health is a Human Right

Amnesty International USA: Urge Secretary Sebelius’ Department to Create an Office of Maternal Health

In honor of Mother’s Day, stand up for Mother’s rights. The goal is to breakdown the barriers to care for pregnant women in the United States, and put an end to preventable maternal death. Help pregnant woman get the healthcare they deserve by signing  the Amnesty International petition demanding the implementation of systems to analyze problems, propose solutions and improve maternal health standards.

Together, we demanded action on the shameful state of maternal health care in the United States.Lawmakers are listening. More than forty members of Congress signed a letter urging HHS to address the maternal health care crisis in the United States. And this Thursday, Reps. John Conyers (D-MI), Lois Capps (D-CA) and Gwen Moore (D-WI) are cooperating with Amnesty on a Congressional briefing on maternal health care.
