One of the big travesties in this country is the fact that we still have hunger and homelessness in this country even though we are still the most prosperous nation in the world. However, given the continuing problem of hunger and homelessness in this country, we need to be able to engage in much more effective planning in order to reduce hunger and homelessness and get people off of the streets and into homes.

The HEARTH Act is designed to do that by bringing groups and people together in order to address the problem of hunger and homelessness.

No woman should die giving birth.

Recently, I wrote about where we would like to be in the next 100 years. Most of us in the left-wing blogosphere want to see the end of world hunger, wars, and poverty, among other things. But there was one thing missing from that declaration — no woman should have to die giving birth to their child. This is a goal that the UN Population Fund has set (UNFPA).

I propose that, to #10, the eradication of disease:

All major diseases will be eliminated through massive new investment, research, and design in drugs and treatments. All people will have universal access to such treatments. Prevention will be the primary source of treatment for diseases.

That we add at the end, “No woman should die giving birth to their child or children.”
