America has the laxest abortion laws in the world.

Now it has the worst family cohesion in the world, second only to Latvia.
Just 70 percent of American children grow up with both parents, worse than the developed world average of 84 percent.... And American marriages fail more than anywhere else except Latvia, the report says.
I've heard a lot of Christian triumphalists claim our nation is the greatest on earth; these are usually the same people who think America is blessed and favored by God, who've bought into the notion that our founding had its roots in religious freedom, that the Founding Fathers were each devout Christians, and who think no form of government could possibly be greater than democracy.

Considering the objective evidence of our great love of abortion and divorce, such triumphalists need to think twice before claiming the Divine somehow "favors" America over other nations...
