Help fight prematurity!

Visit the March of Dimes website and sign their Prematurity Awareness Petition.  Over all, the United States gets a D on the 2008 Premature Birth Report Card.  Premature births are on the rise, and its the #1 cause of death for new born babies.  You can check the grade of your state on the site and learn the statistics that caused your state to get the grade it did.  Colorado gets a D, only one state got above a C, Vermont.
