Since 2011, according to a report by the healthcare consulting firm Chartis, 217 hospitals across the country have closed their labor and delivery departments. In the past year alone, according to CNN, 13 closures either occurred or were announced.
The Chartis report explains that the states with the highest loss of access to obstetrical care include Minnesota, Texas, Iowa, Kansas, and Wisconsin, each of which lost more than 10 facilities over the past roughly 12 years.
"One of the reasons for the closures is money," reported CNN about the matter. "Other reasons include a low volume of births and staffing and recruitment."

The societal cost of all this maternity ward loss, according to data released by the March of Dimes last year, includes the more than 2.2 million women of childbearing age over 1,100 U.S. counties who now live in maternity care "deserts."
What this means is that more than 2.2 million women who could get, or might already be, pregnant have no convenient access to the maternity care they need in order to safely deliver a baby.
"That has been linked to an increased risk of maternal death in the year after giving birth," reports explain.
The American Hospital Association (AHA) also reported that some 42 percent of births that occur in the U.S. are paid for by Medicaid, which has notoriously low reimbursement rates.
All that to say: It has become too expensive and too inconvenient for many women of childbearing age across America to safely have a baby.
Not only that, but tens of millions of women of childbearing age also got jabbed for the Fauci Flu, which means their chances of getting pregnant are much lower than they would have been had they stuck with their own natural immunity.
In the years to come, birth rates will likely drop even more as the fallout from the government's anti-life mandates takes its toll, leaving the country devoid of a viable next generation to carry the torch of society and civilization into the future.
"Birth decline is nothing new and certainly was a cause for alarm way before covid vaccines," one commenter wrote about these developments.
"Do a search on the BBC for 'Fertility rate: Jaw-dropping global crash in children being born.' You'll see that it being a result of covid vaccines has nothing to do with it."
Another responded to this by suggesting that while there was definitely concern over dropping birth rates long before covid injections, the ongoing precipitous declines of recent years are certainly still a factor of the clot shots.
"It has upped the ante considerably and will continue to do so," this person added.
Another commenter pointed out that the covid lockdowns and other restrictions likely prevented many men and young people in general from carrying out decisions such as properly starting a family – not to mention loss of income, skyrocketing housing prices, and other detrimental impacts of globalism.
"The virus became a PRIORITY and it displaced every other consideration under the sun," this person added. "I have lost count of the number of videos I watched of police beating up people who refused to wear a mask. What does that tell you?"
