In the U.S. alone, every hour of every day more than four babies per hour die from stillbirth....that is almost 107 babies a day! Many are full term, apparently healthy infants.

Another 46 babies die every day in the U.S. within the first 28 days of life from prematurity, congenital anomalies, unknown causes, or accidental death.

Nearly 30 babies die within the first year of life from other illnesses and congenital anomalies.

Nearly 30,000 Americans die every year from suicide.

Thousands upon thousands more children die every year: motor vehicle accidents, fires, illness, cancer, sudden infant death, homicide.

Most every person on earth is someone else's child.
