    Choosing to ignore me instead of do the research and actually learn something? You seem to be very quick on finding things that support your view but seem to want to ignore or minimize those that don't. In one of your post, you stated you were still a student, tell me, what would your teachers think of a report/research based project if you turned in such incomplete data as you have been doing here?

    I asked the questions of you attempting to look beyond what you "already know" and consider other facts that might relate. But alas, I guess at your age, you know it all already and have all the answers so there is not need to actually spend time learning something else.

    Here is one piece that I was trying to get you to learn.

    "Stillbirths and newborn deaths are 50% higher among infants born to adolescent mothers than among those born to mothers aged 20-29 years." WHO | Adolescent pregnancy

    From Prevalence of teenage pregnancy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    US live birth rate for teens is 41.5/1000 (2008)

    Countries at the top of your list
    Finland--don't see it
    Sweden--5.9/1000
    Norway--9.5
    Iceland--14.5
    Netherlands--5.3

    This is just one of the data points I was trying to get you to open your mind to and learn on your own, try looking up some of the rest.

    Your a student, Learn.

    No I don't like Al Jazeera. They are the equivalent of Fox or MSNBC for the Middle East. Biased and unpredictable.

    Oh and since you seem to have trouble listening to the information its not from the WHO its from Save The Children and here is the study
    http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/si...thers_2013.pdf
    I guess you don't read footnotes? Not only is UNICEF one of their primary sources...but the WHO numbers are used as part of their data. And UNICEF and WHO have joint reporting standards as they are BOTH a part of...THE UN!!! Seriously. It took me 5 minutes to just look at your sources and tell you that (5 because my computer didn't load the document fast enough). Seriously dude.

    Those numbers rely on the national reporting agencies which have DIFFERENT standards and the United States has a much stricter standard of measurement when it comes to children. And this is shown across the board even in crime statistics listed by the WHO. Let me know when you start reading your own footnotes.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Mexico as well. Apparently running across the border pregnant is an accident? Who knew?

    Our priorities are sickening.
    Interestingly, all the people that want universal Healthcare and want to keep Obamacare won't move out like you did. Go Figure.

    Obamacare is a handout to the corporations, and does nothing to reform the exhorbitant fees in the hospitals themselves. A friend of mine went to the hospital a month ago for a migraine from hell. He got a cat scan, among other things. His itemized bill put the aspirin they gave him at $200, for 2 pills. Outrageous. Obamacare does nothing to stop that kind of price gouging.

    Obamacare is not UHC. Not even close. I don't support it, and what the other sheep believe is their business.

    Remember our health care system according to some is "the best in the world".. Another thing not to be proud of with our terrible healthcare system. (only a matter of time until AAC gets brought into this)
    So, how do you propose we raise the quality of health care?

    That won't do a single thing to improve the quality of healthcare, in The United States. Now, how do you propose that improve the quality of healthcare?
