    It actually comes down to how other "rich countries" measure child hood death. In the United States we count the child from the instant it leaves the womb. Not so in other countries. So we count still births as infant deaths, France gives them a few days.

    Its all a fabrication to make us look like we are killing off our children.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
