senate Bill S. 3029

Should Federal Research on Premature Births Be Reauthorized?

Argument in favor

Premature births are risky for infants’ mortality and also increase babies’ odds of later health and developmental complications. The PREEMIE Act has helped reduce premature birth rates in the U.S. and funded important research on this topic, and this bill reauthorizes and improves it.

All federal science funding should be increased (and arts funding) and we should eliminate gratuitous military spending.

This is part of what a pro-life agenda is about. Need to follow with universal single payer healthcare, housing, food security, and education.

Argument opposed

While scientific research has improved premature babies’ chances of survival and living long, healthy lives, it hasn’t eradicated chronic health issues and developmental complications that affect some premature babies. It’s questionable how much more can be done to improve the situation.

Only if we are willing to study why, we as a nation have institutionalized and yes even cheered the murdering of 72 million unborn children since the passage of Roe v. Wade. Otherwise what’s the point? Sorry folks, but the “truth will out’ as they say.

Let the University and the Medical community study such things and keep the Government out of it.

If the Republicans weren't subsidizing the wealthy 1% we would have plenty of money for this and many others.

    We have a high infant mortality rate compared to other 1st world countries. If we want to correct that, funding programs like this is crucial.

    I spent 16 years working in neonatal intensive care nurseries. Education is critical, along with outreach and support. Many of these babies belong to babies. I remember one that sticks in my memory. a young mother came into the nursery to see her baby in a disney nightgown and disney slippers.

    2006 and we still need funding? What have they accomplished in 12 years? Or is this just another never ending taxpayer fund boondoggle?

    And this should include full funding for planned parenthood that directly acts as a positive factor on pregnant women and young kids

    With our "advanced nation" becoming one of the first in infant mortality rates, I fully support this bill. Early medical problems result in lifelong and expensive medical issues.

    My daughter was born at 28 weeks and with a short stay in the hospital she was on her was to being a normal beautiful little girl. But many others where not so lucky, her neighbors in the neonatal area where twins that were born at 29 weeks, because of the shared space before they were born they had many complications and Jack even passed away after a couple days leaving his loving family and sister Jill behind. We have come along way but there is no need to stop, these babies still need our help.

    All human life should be given every opportunity to thrive no matter what circumstances they may be in. It is because of this type of research that dear friends of mine were able to deliver their baby girl at just 26 weeks. She is now healthy and so full of joy.

    Is there any data that says this previous research has been effective? Also, throwing opioid addiction language seems to be the new catch phrase to get any type of bill through Congress, which makes me suspicious of this Bill now.

    Good public health is in the public interest. Hence the following: Anti drunk driving laws, Anti smoking efforts, Freeway guard rails, Toxic waste disposal requirements....
