“Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.”
FRANCIS OF ASSISI

Prenatally and Postnatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act

(previously known as the Brownback Kennedy Bill)

The request is for $25 million over 5 years.  Funding will ensure that parents receiving a diagnoses of their unborn or newly born child will be provided with up- to- dated, scientific information regarding life expectancy, clinical course, intellectual and functional development and prenatal and post natal treatment options.

This bipartisan bill was unanimously signed into law on October 8, 2008. Currently we are requesting our legislators to sign on to the McMorris- Rodgers Approriations letter, circulated by Rep Kathy McMorris - Rodgers.
