Help Pass The Prenatally & Postnatally Diagnosed Condition Act!
Posted Sep 26 2008 2:49pm
Taken Straight From The Press Release! Please read below. We are all disgusted with the current Prenatal & Postnatal diagnosis procedures. Over 80% of New and Expecting parents are horrified with the lack of support or information regarding the a diagnosis of their new or unborn baby. Most of the time the only suggestion is, termination. There is rarely any counseling, support or updated information given to parents! This has to stop, and this Bill can help stop eugenics from being played out by Dr's to the degree that it is. This is why I wrote my Petition! Well the Bill has finally after 3 years, passed the Senate! Help it pass! Make a phone call! Just read below at what you can do to help!
