When Motherhood Kills: The Effects of For-Profit Healthcare

Should we judge a government by how they treat their most vulnerable and marginalized?  Today, Act Out! takes a look at a grotesque statistic regarding the maternal death rate of black women in this country.  Is the US  in the practice of condemning predominantly black mothers to death?  Eleanor Goldfield explores the topic with Betty Holmon, of the DC Nurses Association.

Act Out covers the news corporate media won't touch. Stories from the front lines of the fight to build a better world.  Focused on creative and grassroots activism, Act Out is the brainchild of activist/writer/singer Eleanor Goldfield. Watch every Saturday on Free Speech TV or on-demand right here.
