Creative Cubans

Apparently Cuba has been distorting its life expectancy and infant mortality statistics. Babies who die within 24 hours of birth are sometimes not counted in infant mortality rates and Cuba's abortion rate is 7 in 10 pregnancies.

Apparently, Cubans are often pressured into abortions if there is a chance a baby might require extra medical care.
