Quotes from AIB VP Segment:
CBS News correspondent Danya Bacchus asks Vice President Harris: “What inspired you to take on this topic [Black maternal mortality]?”
Vice President Kamala Harris: “The United States, being one of the richest countries in the world, has one of the highest rates of maternal mortality. It's a health care crisis in America, happening right before our eyes. And I felt the need to take it on in a substantial way, especially when you look at the numbers, and Black women are three times more likely to die in connection with childbirth.”
