Thanks for the editorial push for Congress to pass the Reach Every Mother and Child Act ("A chance to accelerate the decline in preventable childhood deaths needs legislative support," May 10). With millions of lives of mothers and children on the line, it is important to do this work sooner rather than later. We can all join in the push to pass this lifesaving legislation by asking our senators and representatives to speak to leadership so this bill can come up for a vote. The overwhelming support that already exists can then pass it. Won’t you take a few minutes to make a call or write an email?
