It's higher by about 1 death.

so our health care only sucks a little bit more than others?

or did you mean that, yes, it is higher in the US, despite claims that our magical free market health care falls short of other nations with evil socialist health care?

They should probably have been more concerned with prenatal care then.

it isn't always that simple. sometimes miscarriages happen and babies die even if the mother took excellent care of herself throughout the entire stage of pregnancy. the world isn't just black and white, good and bad. but i really don't feel like getting into this with you.

i'm just saying. for example, not every baby born with downs syndrome developed it because mommy couldn't put down the vodka. sometimes things just happen. sometimes you follow everything the doctor and parenting books tell you to the letter, and you come to check on them in the morning and find they died in their sleep. it's sad and horrible, i'm not denying that, but to paint every defect and death with the same brush isn't right.

I'm not painting them all with the same brush. My only point was, to say that we're lagging behind the EU because we have one more death per thousand births is a load of shit.
