USA Ranks #41 in Infant Mortality! Tied with Qatar! - Page 2
I would direct bonnie40 to the WHO report in PLoS, but I don't think she'd understand it with all "them numbers and whatnot".
Vickie 803 found a way to bring racism into the equation:
Since we get so many Mexicans ready to pop out a new citizen for us, how do we compare to Mexico's birth rate.
Mr. Lottery added his own racist thoughts:
The numbers are skewed by the crackhead moms and their crack babies.
See? This is how we do things in this new "nation of the stupid."
There are 40 countries on the face of the planet where a child has a better chance of making it to age 1 than that child does in the United States. And instead of clamoring for better health care, better prenatal care and education, better birth control, better training for health care professionals, better and safer facilities for health care, the conservative wipe away the problem by REFUSING TO BELIEVE THE NUMBERS and bringing RACISM into the equation.
Anyone else see the problem here yet?
