Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

1,200 or 10,958

My husband and I started to watch a movie last night, and during the previews, an ad came on about the number of deaths each day in the U.S. due to cancer from cigarette smoking. Perhaps you've seen it.


I remarked to my husband, "That really isn't very many."

For something self-inflicted, he replied, it really is. And I suppose he's right, but you know where I'm going with this.

10,958 babies stillborn every day.

Why does no one make a commercial about that?
