There are many things for which I am grateful to modern science. One is the lowered rate of death among new mothers. But in the places modern science has not taken root many women die hemorrhaging after they have given birth. The thought of giving birth is scary enough without that.
Bleeding to death is a real danger for women in rural and under-developed areas. So I donated to Venture Strategies, an organization getting medical supplies and knowledge to women in Ethiopia, specifically medication that stops hemorrhaging.
