[CDC Office of Women's Health, Health Matters for Women] Declines in Triplet and Higher-order Multiple Births in the United States, 1998–2014
The incidence of triplet and higher-order multiple births rose fourfold during the 1980s and 1990s (1-3). This rise was associated with older maternal age and the increased use of fertility-enhancing therapies (4,5) and was of concern because of the greater risk of adverse outcome of triplet and higher-order births compared with singletons and the added toll of these pregnancies on maternal health (6). Since 1998, however, this trend has edged downward (3).
While We Were Out: North Carolina’s Bathroom Law
[Content note: mentions of transphobia and child sexual abuse] While Feministe has been down, an issue erupted in North Carolina about where trans people are allowed to pee. In response to a local ordinance in Charlotte outlawing discrimination against trans people, the North Carolina legislature passed HB2, a law mandating discrimination, requiring trans people to use the bathroom corresponding to the sex listed on their birth certificate rather than the gender with which they identify. Here are some highlights, if somehow you missed it while you were missing us.
