Charlotte Observer reports on efforts to curb the nation's disgraceful infant mortality record; documents the case of one baby born prematurely to a poor North Carolina family who died 159 days later after building up a hospital bill of over $232,000; shows how poverty, drugs, apathy, and ignorance keep women from getting prenatal care; teenage pregnancies also contribute to the problem, Nov. 26 - 30, 1989.
