    You would think the leading cause of death for pregnant women is complications with their pregnancy... but that is not so.

    Leading cause of death for pregnant women is murder.

    90% of the time the murder is the husband/boyfriend/father of the baby... the other 10 % is made up of parents/other relatives/strangers or santanic dudes in brown vans.

    I seem to recall that in New York, First degree is reserved for the murder of a police officer or corrections official. Second can be what most states call first. I may be wrong about this though.. I'd have to research it.

    It only beats Heart Disease by 1%. (who'd have thought Heart Disease would be #2?)

    What is scary is that 20% of deaths in Pregnant women are due to murder, but only 6% of non-pregnant (child-bearing years) women, so obviously being pregnant ups your chances of getting murdered.
