CALL FOR HOUSE CO-SPONSORS! All MISS members must contact their U.S. House of Representative requesting their co-sponsorship of H.R. 1037 – the Stillbirth Research and Awareness Act of 2011.

Please call your Congressperson’s office and ask for the staff member who deals with Health issues. Tell the staff member that you want your Congressperson to co-sponsor H.R. 1037 – the Stillbirth Research and Awareness Act of 2011 and would like to send them an e-mail. Then get their e-mail address and send them an e-mail such as this:

Dear (staffmember),

My family would be honored if Rep. (Name) would co-sponsor H.R. 1037 – the Stillbirth Research and Awareness Act of 2011 by Rep. Peter King. We lost our son/daughter in the 40th week of pregnancy and it devastated our family. Every year, more than 25,000 children die of stillbirths and half of those are undiagnosed. The bill would help further stillbirth research to potentially help future parents not suffer the horrible loss that we had to endure. Please help all future parents by co-sponsoring H.R. 1037 and I look forward to your response.

(Your Name)

(Address)

(Phone number)

Please go to “How to communicate to your elected official” for the instructions when contacting your U.S. House of Representative. Also, please read each of the pages on this blog to familiarize yourself with the federal stillbirth legislative campaign. Find your U.S. House of Representative and U.S. Senator.
