The US is a worse place for newborns than 68 other countries, including Egypt, Turkey and Peru, according to a report released Tuesday by Save the Children.

“The United States has the highest first-day death rate in the industrialized world. An estimated 11,300 newborn babies die each year in the United States on the day they are born. This is 50 percent more first-day deaths than all other industrialized countries combined.”

Republicans are against abortion, but seem to have no problem decreasing funding for research to help prevent infant death.

It does seem to play into the adage, "republicans only care about babies until they're born."

yeah, and they have no problem with slaughtering them when they are in elementary school either. Make sure they are born then shove a gun in their hand so they can die. Great strategy there, CONS.
