President Obama sponsored similar legislation when he was a U.S. Senator so outcome looking good. This bill begins the formal process to creating a set protocol for data collection for stillbirth deaths, SUDC and SUID. If passed, the CDC in conjunction with the NIH, will begin to implement the policies and procedures.
We’d like to thank all bereaved parents for their continued grassroots efforts in pushing this legislation to this point. The President has to the end of the year to sign the bill into law.
