Dear PSI member/friend;
Yesterday, January 4, 2007, Congressman Bobby Rush reintroduced the Melanie Stokes Act to the 110th Congress as H.R. 20. It is crucial that we generate additional momentum for passage of this bill by placing calls to our local Congressmen encouraging their support of the legislation.
Please, without delay, determine your local Congressman by clicking on the link below and immediately placing a call to their office, strongly requesting their support for passage of H.R. 20. We have a window of opportunity to finally enact protections for all women which will include assessment, treatment and education about perinatal mood disorders. Your call could elicit the deciding vote.
