SCID screening in Virginia

I am asking and urging you to require SCID screening for newborns in Virginia.  Innocent newborns and infants should never leave this earth because they were either not diagnosed or were diagnosed too late in their life.  This is non-negotiable, nor should we ever have to sign a petition when it comes to their health.  Put parent's anxieties at ease and require the SCID screening!
