I’m calling BULLSHIT on this one.
See my note on the part malpractice lawsuits play in these needless killings. These are deaths brought about by the conscious negligence of the Democrat National Committee. Tim Kaine is doing the killing.

“Im calling BULLSHIT on this one.”
You and me both. I don’t believe this for a minute.
Saying this as one who, having moved to Canada for her husband 10 years ago, dearly misses American health care.
I don’t call BS on this, I just don’t necessarily agree with their reasoning.
I think the health care community in this country needs to take a serious look at the rate of unnecessary inductions and high c-section (and repeat c-section) rate in this country. Some mothers are scheduling unnecessary inductions for convenience. Many mothers are pushed into inductions or c-sections when they aren’t necessary (and yes, I know some of them are necessary and life saving). Doctors have become so afraid of lawsuits that they won’t let mothers’ bodies do what they need to do. They push deadlines for having babies, deadlines for length of labor. And most refuse to perform VBACs (vaginal birth after cesarean) b/c of the “risks”, yet they fail to acknowledge the risk of major surgery.
We’ve put more limits on childbirth in this country than we have on abortion. It’s sickening. I searched high and low to find a doctor to perform my VBAC when I had my 2nd daughter last year. Couldn’t find one in the area. I finally found a wonderful midwife, who understood my desire for a pregnancy and birth with as little intervention as possible, to attend my homebirth. Best decision I made. And yet, even then there are limits. Many states have restrictions on midwifery. Some of them even make midwife attended home births illegal. My midwife, is is fully trained and licensed in Virginia, was not allowed to prescribe or carry medicine. So if I lost too much blood after the birth she wouldn’t have been able to give me pitocin to stop it. My daughter needed oxygen after the birth (cord issue that would have happened at the hospital too), but she wasn’t allowed to have any with her.
Hmm, I’ve rambled on a bit here. Sorry. A bit passionate about the subject.
I agree. I just don’t know how they skewed the data yet.
Did you know that the stats of longevity which show the US behind many socialist countries are the product of non-uniform standards?
For instance, the US counts the death of live birth babies; Europe does not.
"But the international comparisons in "infant mortality" rates aren't comparing the same thing, anyway. We also count every baby who shows any sign of life, irrespective of size or weight at birth.
By contrast, in much of Europe, babies born before 26 weeks' gestation are not considered "live births." Switzerland only counts babies who are at least 30 centimeters long (11.8 inches) as being born alive. In Canada, Austria and Germany, only babies weighing at least a pound are considered live births.
And of course, in Milan it's not considered living if the baby isn't born within driving distance of the Côte d'Azur.
By excluding the little guys, these countries have simply redefined about one-third of what we call "infant deaths" in America as "miscarriages."
Moreover, many industrialized nations, such as France, Hong Kong and Japan -- the infant mortality champion -- don't count infant deaths that occur in the 24 hours after birth. Almost half of infant deaths in the U.S. occur in the first day."
That's just one of the reasons Amnesty International's claims are bogus. She covers them and the above in this article:
