Another shady trick the study pulled was in failing to disclose the parameters that go into determining "infant mortality." In the US, heroic efforts are made to save babies with serious defects and very early preemies. When those efforts fail, they're counted as deaths, thus lowering our statistic. In other countries they don't even try and they don't count those babies as deaths.Do you want to give birth some place where a problem pregnancy means a dead baby or in the US with its "worse" infant mortality stats where the baby has a fighting chance?--fleg
