Pro-life author on the risk of death in pregnancy

Pro-Life author William M Connolly gives a perspective on the risk of death during pregnancy:

“The risk of death hovers around one in 100,000 pregnancies. In contrast, there is an approximate one in 10,000 risk of death if a woman drives her automobile during the next nine months… There is an even higher statistical risk of death or serious injury if a woman goes skiing this winter or scuba diving this summer. There are inherent risks in many things we do in life.”
