    The importance of the quality of food ingested by a female during pregnancy is extremely important . Buy the best foods possible . Organic would be best , of course .

    Government support is important .

    Dietetics ( dietitian ) , are funded by the government . With a certain amount of family work load .

    Food coupons , etc . Given in non fraudulent forms . To supplement low income families .

    watching pregnant women eat food laden with trans fats makes me feel a little uneasy

    The quality of food eatin matters , to the child unborn . And society .

    Hence why I suggest a government program for lower income women , who are pregnant , to get access to quality food .

    That would be some help, but not very much, if the woman was malnourished, vitamin deficient, anemic, exposed to environmental toxins, addicted and/or obese before pregnancy, and she and the baby are poorly fed and housed afterward.
    Patchy social services are better than nothing - but not that much better!

    such "programs" already exist, however they are used to exploit voters and manipulate wage rates.
    it is not for the lack of programs, but the lack of morally sound people to set them up and run them properly.
    note, this is referring to the usa and other right wing capitalist type societys.
    there are plenty of examples where such women get adequate funding for food & healthcare.
    the irony is that the usa claim to have the best health care in the world, however they cant deliver that to pregnant women.
    this directly invalidates the moral authority of the anti-abortionists because they claim that moral equality is the base of the right to life, yet declare persona non grata to the victim by virtue of personal "playing god games" with funding for food and medical treatment.

    It does - well, anyway one of the best - for Alphas, Betas and some fortunate Gammas. Deltas and Epsilons are plum out of luck.
    In order to compare the quality of health care, you'd have to get the statistics for cure rates in various common ailments. But the statistics are hopelessly skewed by differences in the delivery of those health services. In the UK and some 30 other countries, the treatment of choice, administered by staff of the same skill level, for every condition is offered to every patient, so the outcome stats are inclusive of a broad range of backgrounds and medical histories. In the US, different treatment options apply to different insurance plans - or no insurance; health facilities have a varied remuneration rate and can recruit doctors the way wealthy football clubs can poach FIFA stars.
    Still, however they crunch and deform the figures, the US health care system doesn't make the top ten. (April internatio90nal travel puts it 11th; WHO rates it 37th -- quite a gap in criteria!)

    equal opportunity...
    but no equal utilities to provide equal human rights

    quite a fascination to consider the mental composition of those who claim poor working class get equality by being denied everything and then calling it freedom and democracy.

    slavery has been incorporated into American culture by installing class systems that define profiling/racial and economic class and forced group association/nerds/geeks/gays/jews
    as a sub class with expected levels of violence they must endure as children.

    the problem is not uniquely American, however the American wholesale adoption of the social class system used to remove rights from working class poor and racial minorities is institutionalized into cultural practice.

    American leadership is far too racist(hidden behind a mask of classicism defined as a normal jungle rules reality of financial systems) to install a system of universal health care or universal food access(rivers comments about food stamps for poor pregnant)

    cant wait to see the racist political machine start up against AOC.
    should be quite educational(while biden has a very good concept of racial equality to sit side by side with trump and thus offer a serious challenge for racist swing voters... i think AOC running for as long as possible is a better model of the imputes for a need to focus resources on young women leaders for the future).
    it would have been even better to have everyone behind AOC to be able to clearly polarize the racist electioneering that will be done with smoke and mirrors once they have started to smear biden as much as possible.
