HB 4584 simply provides doctors with an easy-to-understand pamphlet that directs expectant parents to a reputable and reliable source tailored to the informational needs of their patient. Providing easy-to-understand and readily available information is an essential public service.

Dear Sen. [FIRST NAME LAST NAME] -
I’m writing to urge your support for House Bill 4584. HB 4584 provides doctors with an easy-to-understand pamphlet that directs expectant parents to a reputable and reliable source tailored to the informational needs of their patient. Providing easy-to-understand and readily available information is an essential public service.

Moreover, HB 4584 is pro-information – not pro-life or pro-choice. HB 4584 will direct expectant parents to information compiled by experts in Spina Bifida before discussing a path tailored by a doctor to the specific needs of their patient.

Finally, HB 4584 will not stick the government in the middle of patient-physician relationships. Full stop. The information would be provided to patients at confirmation – rather than suspicion – of diagnosis.

Again, I urge you to support HB 4584!
