Please vote in favor of SCID screening in newborns!

Once there was a time that I'd never heard of SCID. Then I met my friends who lost a son to SCID. A few years later, they almost lost another before they had it diagnosed.  No family should  ever have to suffer the loss of a child due to medical incompetence.  Our children NEED this screening.  A vote against this Is a vote against the health and well-being of our future generation.
