    In its new report, Amnesty disclosed maternal mortality ratios (per 100,000 live births) for each of the 50 states, and the nation’s capitol:

    51 — Washington, DC (34.9 deaths per 100,000 live births)
    50 — Georgia (20.5)
    49 — New Mexico (16.9)
    48 — Maryland (16.5)
    47 — New York (16.0)
    46 — Louisiana (15.9)
    45 — Mississippi (15.2)
    44 — Arkansas (14.6)
    42 — Delaware, Michigan (13.6)
    41 — Florida (13.1)
