Save Moms and Kids
Each year more than 300,000 women die due to complications during pregnancy or childbirth and 1 million newborns die on their first day of life. Tragically, many of these deaths are preventable with access to simple, evidence-based solutions.
With your voice, you can help end preventable maternal and child deaths within a generation. On July 30th, Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Chris Coons (D-DE) introduced The Reach Every Mother and Child Act. This bold, bi-partisan legislation would help scale up simple, evidence-based solutions like access to prenatal care, family planning, immunizations, and safe drinking water to save the lives of 15 million children and 600,000 women by 2020.
As people of faith, God calls us to respond to the suffering in the world, to love our neighbors throughout the world. (Leviticus 19:18) As followers of Christ, we are members of the same body, and the loss of one member is a loss for all.
Urge your Member of Congress to stand up for the sacred worth of women and children by co-sponsoring The Reach Every Mother and Child Act so that all may survive and thrive.
