The U.S. ranks 47th in infant survival

According to the CIA World Factbook, in 2011 it is estimated that 6.06 infants die per 1,000 lives births in the United States, which makes the United States tied for forty-seventh with the Faroe Islands in that category. Monaco ranks first, with 1.79 deaths per 1,000 live births.

    Wow, this really sucks, and we are worried about abortion in the United States, but we can’t keep our infants alive any better than many third world countries. Yikes.
