jaytkay: Fark It: ginandbacon: I don't think we in this country should be gloating: "In 2010, countries with highest maternal mortality were: Chad (1,100), Somalia (1,000), Central African Republic, (890), Sierra Leone (890) and Burundi (800).[11]
Lowest rates included Estonia at 2 per 100,000 and Singapore at 3 per 100,000. In the United States, the maternal death rate was 21 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 2010."

In the U.S. there are more women having babies when they're older, and more diabetic/obese women having babies.

So your point is, "If we ignore THESE dead infants, we are not doing badly!"

We have high infant mortality and lower life expectancy in the US. Period

We have a crappy health care system, considering we spend twice as much per person as normal countries.

But at LEAST it's not that hippie-commie-islamofascist-SOCIALISM!

/must be why it works better almost half the time!
