This wouldn't have anything to do with our failed health care system?:
All moms should take notice -- because the World Health Organization ranks the United States 29th in the world in infant mortality. And among industrialized nations, the U.S. has the second worst infant mortality rate. Babies born here in the great U.S.A. are three times more likely to die in their first month than children born in Japan, according to a recent report by Save the Children. The newborn mortality rate is 2.5 times higher in the United States than in Finland, Iceland, or Norway, states the report. Only Latvia, with six deaths per 1,000 live births, has a higher death rate for newborns than the United States -- and is near the bottom of industrialized nations with Hungary, Malta, Poland, and Slovakia, with five deaths per 1,000 births. You get the idea.
