War On Women - 10 Worst States For Women's Health

Mississippi. Arkansas. Idaho. Kentucky. Louisiana. Tennessee. Oklahoma. Texas. West Virginia. Wyoming. The 10 worst States for women's health, according to What do these states also have in common? They're deeply conservative, Red/ Rethuglican states. Here's what data the survey was based on:
"To compile this list, used data from several sources, including the Kaiser Family Foundation, the National Women’s Law Institute, and the Guttmacher Institute.

"We looked at more than a dozen indicators, including the percentage of women getting first trimester prenatal care, the percentage of women who were up-to-date on cervical and breast cancer screening, maternal mortality rates, and the percentage of women living in poverty.

"States that were in the top 10 on these indicators were most likely to be included in our list; states are not listed in any particular order."

Unless and until the American talibangelists and good ol' boys that run these states are defeated, don't expect this list to change any time soon.
