US Infant Mortality Rate Myth
I was listening to the radio a few days back it was a show with Mark Simone sitting in for Sean Hannity ( I’m not the biggest fan of either) and he was interviewing a tomato. The subject at hand was Socialized Health Care.
The tomato, aka Bob Beckle the very same person who ran Mondale’s campaign -some say he ran it into the ground but that’s unfair after all Mondale did barely win his own state- regurgitated two points that are at the top of the liberal repertoire of lies.
1) The US has one of the worst infant mortality rate (IMR) .
2) “I had preexisting conditions cannot get health insurance”
Both those topics are easily manipulated by left wing scum bags who rely on sound bite size slogans to feed their lazy and ignorant minions need for justification of their bigoted anti-American agenda. My readers on the hand are thoughtful educated individuals who care about finding out the truth and therefore will have no trouble understanding how the media and the liberals are misrepresenting these two issues.
The first one, the liberal lie that “The US has one of the worst infant death rate in the world” is the kind of bold face lie that only scum bags like Beckle still spews. The reality is that we have by far the best and highest infant survivability rate in the entire world probably better than France, Italy and Germany combined.
Here is the how the lie is propagated.
In most European countries the size of the baby determines if the baby is born alive or stillborn.
Even in most “civilized” European nations such as Germany, Austria and France a live, kicking and screaming baby is reported as still borne, dead, if it weighs under 1.1025 pound ( 500 grams).
Other European countries , such as Switzerland, require that the fetus must be at least 30 centimeters (12 inches) long to be declared “alive”
In France and Belgium additional RULES require that a baby be at least 26 weeks old to be declared alive.
In less “civilized” countries such as Russia and some of its former satellites the size requirement is 2.205 pounds ( 1000 grams) less that 28 weeks or less than 14 inches ( 35 cm) or failed to survive 7 days. If those conditions were not met the baby was declared still born.
In many countries the death of a 12 month old infant is just registered as a death of a 13 month old baby and thus no longer part of the IMR.
“Another seemingly paradoxical finding is that when countries with poor medical services introduce new medical centers and services, instead of declining the reported IMRs often increase for a time.”
Further more there is the deliberate inaccurate reporting of infant vs. stillborn deaths in most of the world. If we add to that the exceptionally high rate of abortions performed, even just late term abortions than the picture takes a ghastly turn towards some sort of Hieronymus Bosch living hell and the EU hospitals can be easily characterized as abattoirs.
Its virtually impossible to get real stillborn rates but its very significant to note that Sweden and Denmark which rank No.3 and N0. 14 respectively in the UN Infant Mortality Rate also has the highest stillbirth rate in Western Europe with over 7 per 100.( That’s 40% higher than even the worldwide rates!)
In Japan which ranks third int he UN IMR rankings there is a statistical anomaly regarding the incredibly high stillbirth rates ( especially the number of female infants reported dead in the first 24 hours ). In 2002 the Japanese still birth rate was an astonishing 31 per 1000 which rivals the 32 per 100o recorded in South-East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa and is over SIX TIMES HIGHER than the worldwide average
The reported EU IMR rate is 5,72 per thousand and the US rate is 6.62 per thousand . Lets do some arithmetic here, sorry liberals I know I’ll lose you here, and see how that adds up. In the us there are a reported approximately 13% of babies born premature ( I have found no data on babies born at term but under EU measurements). If Japan ranked number three is reduced to a more realistic world wide average of 5 stillborn deaths per 1000 and we add the difference of 26 babies to the official UN IMR rate of 3.4 per 1000 then we get a total of 29.4 per 1000. Way higher than the 6.2 in the US and in the same neighborhood with Kazakhstan and Indonesia. If we apply the same method to Sweden and use average EU stillbirth rates then the IMR rate becomes 6.2 per thousand the same as the US.
As you can see I have just given very compelling evidence , with a simple investigation using publicly available information in less than an hour’s time, that the Infant Mortality Rates as currently published by the UN and WHO are bogus. Why isn’t the UN devoting more time to investigating this? Well we know that answer, the UN wastes no occasion to discredit and belittle the United States but why aren’t the libs doing more to find out the truth? Well, I could post the answer by I don’t like to repeat myself.
Visit with us soon so you can see how we dismantle the second lie that Benkle told : “I had preexisting conditions cannot get health insurance”
