U.S. has second worst newborn death rate in modern world, report says

May 10, 2006|By Jeff Green CNN

An estimated 2 million babies die within their first 24 hours each year worldwide and the United States has the second worst newborn mortality rate in the developed world, according to a new report.

American babies are three times more likely to die in their first month as children born in Japan, and newborn mortality is 2.5 times higher in the United States than in Finland, Iceland or Norway, Save the Children researchers found.

Only Latvia, with six deaths per 1,000 live births, has a higher death rate for newborns than the United States, which is tied near the bottom of industrialized nations with Hungary, Malta, Poland and Slovakia with five deaths per 1,000 births.

I saw this somewhere...Is it still true? I saw nothing current to refute this...
So, the Pukes do not want to provide healthcare for all. even the babies they so want to save ?
