The history of black women plays a role in medicine.

Read ProPublica’s article on how the U.S. is the most dangerous industrialized country where children can be born, and racial differences in maternal mortality make it worse for women with skin color: -black-women-from-dying-in-pregnancy-and-birth And they are looking for your help to understand the problem. If you almost died during pregnancy, or if you know someone who has died due to birth causes, please visit this page for more information:

  1. I’m sorry to say that Baltimore black woman really do need this Birth-control medication because one of my friends was pregnant with 10 kids and she saw it as something fun to do and she is black

  2. This was largely done on women & especially immigrants arriving at Ellis Island. Between the 1900-1930s Eugenics ruined all humans. There was a huge series about this called The Knickerbocker.

  3. … perpetually DISTRUSTFUL of the medical field. ADOS women should NEVER EVER go to appointments w/these delusional ppl ALONE!!!! ESPECIALLY IF A PROCEDURE REQUIRES YOU BE 'PUT UNDER'!!!!!

  4. I heard about the Tuskegee study in my ethics class, but I didn't know about the full extent of experimentation on slaves and the forced sterilization campaigns. It's no wonder there is widespread mistrust of the healthcare system in the present day among Black Americans.

  5. Wake up black Americans deuteronomy ch28:15-68 is why we are in this situation repent daily and return back to our creator Yahweh and do his will of laws statue and commandments this day so the evil wouldn't come your way

  6. Well us gypsies where slaves for 800 years !!!! In Eastern Europeean countries , but the horrors that my people were submited to where swepped under the carpet ….
