The Widower's Wife: Fact #7

December 10, 2015

Homicide is the leading killer of pregnant American women. 

 

Violent deaths claim about five pregnant women out of every 100,000 who have live babies. About two out of every 100,000 cases are due to suicide. The remaining three are murders, usually at the hand of an intimate partner. Source: CDC-American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Maternal Mortality Study Group.  (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3428236/)
