I'm sure you all remember, first the story of a woman in Colombia South America, having her child stolen from her womb

Kidnappers Steal Baby From Mother’s Womb

or the recent one here in the States

Amber Alert Issued for Fetus

Seems that pregnant women have been dying left and right. Could there be a connection? Or is our society just going down hill so fast, that not even a pregnant woman is safe?

Killings of new, expectant mothers mount
Crimes poorly understood by public, unaccounted for by police

"Their deaths passed quietly. Tara Chambers, 29, was gunned down on a June morning inside her North Carolina home. Rebecca Johnson, 16, was shot in the chest as she sat in a pickup truck in Oklahoma. Ana Diaz, 28, was killed in a parking lot in Reston as she stopped to get a friend on their way to work."

There are many theories as to why women are dying while in their late stages of their pregnancy,during delivery and even after.
It' a really sad thing to imagine that they're being killed for their babies..so they can Sell them to whealthy parents who can't have kids of their own..It's difficult to paint a whole picture involving all these issues...but I found some interesting aticles...

Why Pregnant Women Become Murder Victims;
While the media spotlight shines on the grisly recovery of Laci Peterson's remains in California, authorities 3,000 miles away in rural North Carolina made a less-publicized, equally grim — and far too common — discovery. On Monday, police found the remains of 20-year-old April Renee Greer, whose dismembered body was found in a trash can that had washed into a farmer's field. Greer was 8½ months pregnant when she was reported missing on March 8. Her boyfriend, Jerry Lynn Stuart, 27, has been charged with first-degree murder in the case.

Woman living in sub-Saharan Africa have a 1 in 16 chance of dying in pregnancy or childbirth
According to the “Maternal Mortality Report 2000”, estimates developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) and UN Population Fund (UNFPA), a woman living in sub-Saharan Africa has a 1 in 16 chance of dying in pregnancy or childbirth. This compares with a 1 in 2,800 risk for a woman from a developed region. These findings are contained in this new global report on maternal mortality. The report is the first of a new analytical technique that has been used to estimate the number of deaths among pregnant women in countries where accurate figures are hard to come by.

Increased Risk of Dying from Pregnancy among Hispanic Women in the United States
The first national study of pregnancy-related deaths in Hispanic women in the United States by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that pregnancy-related deaths occur more frequently in Hispanic women than in non-Hispanic white women. Because Hispanic women have a higher risk of death associated with pregnancy than non-Hispanic white women, more research and surveillance are needed to determine the medical and non-medical factors that contribute to the problem, according to the study’s authors. "Pregnancy-Related Mortality in Hispanic Women in the United States," released in the November 1999 issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology, is based on a review of all reported pregnancy-related deaths occurring between 1979 and 1992 in states reporting Hispanic origin for each year of the study. Following are key findings:

This is a real leap of logic, to deduce that these are anything but isolated cases. Why murder someone and mutilate them to steal a fetus when surrogate mothers and adoptions are available?

Watch and see if a million bucks isn't spent on a study that will conclude that poor nutrition, inadequate medical care, and overall unsanitary conditions are the primary factors leading to these deaths. What a surprise.:shk:

I'll bet that if you break it down into family income levels, you'll find that 90% of these deaths occur in low income and poverty stricken families.

Just trying to save you some time.
