Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An evaluation of maternal mortality statistics in California from 1967-1971 has been performed. There has been a fall in the maternal mortality rate following the institution of a therapeutic abortion act. However, analysis of the data reveals that there was an increase in the deaths due to hemorrhage and sepsis. At this same time the maternal mortality study committee was discontinued. It is strongly felt that the data demonstrate the need for a continuing review of maternal deaths. A proposal is made to redesign the maternal mortality study committee so that it can fully meet the needs of the medical profession and the patient.
