Re my action to get Australia to recognize International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day...
I just figured out an awesome plan of attack! (Just occurred to me now, in a flash of insight).
Here in Oz, there's a new-ish, controversial policy: when people have live births, the Federal government pays them a few thousand dollars -- they say it's to offset the costs, but it's clearly an effort to raise the birth rate.
Controversial because some teenagers have been quoted (on national tv news) as saying things like: "I'll have a baby because I'll get lots of money."
Well...if they want to raise the live birth rate, then why not lower the death rate? Why not pour all those thousands into research on pregnancy and infant loss instead? Nothing controversial there!!!
Oooooooo yeah! If I don't hear back from those two MP's, I'm ready for them. (Yeah, I'm a fighter!). Even if they do contact me first (which they very well might), I'll still mention this concept. The timing is so right in Australia -- don't know why it didn't occur to me before!
Thanks for your support.
Hugs all around,
