    While progress has been made to curb death rates among women in other countries, the US has seen an increase since the year 2000. For the BBC's America First? series, the BBC's Aleem Maqbool is exploring health and social issues where the US, the richest country in the world, does not perform well in international rankings.

    Inadequate provision of satisfactory healthcare for expectant mothers in the US is a significant factor in why so many American women die in childbirth. People who voted for Trump to abolish Obama Care need to consider their contribution to the overall problem.

    Yet so many of those voters, voters who've utilized the ACA for years enthusiastically, didn't even realize -- at least until recently -- that the ACA was in fact the same thing as the dreaded, socialist "Obamacare" they'd been trained to revile.

    Sad.
