First Aired: August 22, 2008
A report on infant mortality in the U.S. focuses on Memphis, where rates are disturbingly high among African-Americans. Correspondent Elizabeth Vargas explores reasons why this is the case, and follows a member of a suburban Presbyterian church group as she mentors a pregnant teen, accompanying her on doctor visits. The father is seen only at his daughter's birth. Seen alive, that is. The young man is also seen at his funeral. He was a homicide victim.
