Victories

victory7.bmpHere we celebrate the growing international awareness of pregnancy and infant loss. Some articles present late breaking news, while others inspire further action by celebrating influential people and cultures.

In this section you will also find petitions that are designed to:

  • Raise awareness;
  • Lobby for action;
  • Call for more research; and
  • Ultimately, save the lives of more babies.

Please click here to read over and add your signature to our current petition. Thank you

Medical advances will surely result from more research into preventable pregnancy and infant loss. So it stands to reason that more babies will survive.

Which is, of course, the ultimate victory.

Please also see our RED ALERT section -- information that could save an unborn baby's life.
