For October we will focus on families in PA getting proper nutrition as part of our nine-month series on Maternal & Early Childhood Issues. Today we look at how many communities in PA are below the poverty level—a big challenge in families getting the necessary nutrition.
Today’s PCC Podcast explains a campaign against the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services and their efforts to impose new mandates about gender identity. At the 2:30 mark we also feature the Secretary of HHS, Xavier Becerra, evading questions last year about why he sued the Little Sisters of the Poor. The Sisters won that case, by the way.
An update for our series on Maternal & Early Childhood Issues on the subject of breastfeeding. There was a press conference last week to reinforce support for a bill that would establish insurance coverage for donated breast milk for babies. Advocates say such milk can be a lifesaver.
