“The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 314, has designated the month of October 1988 as “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month” and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of this month.”
“Now, Therefore, I Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of American, do hereby proclaim the month of October 1988 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities.”
“In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-fifth day of October, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirteenth.”
-Ronald Reagan [Filed with the Office of the Federal Register, 11:13 a.m, October 25, 1988]
Parents, families, friends and health care professionals are encouraged to attend to remember the babies that they’ve lost and help raise public awareness of pregnancy and infant loss.
