I frequently bring up Ohio's unacceptable infant mortality rates among "Christians," and the response is always *crickets.*

We have a zip code here in Akron with a very high infant mortality rate. State Rep. Emilia Sykes has been working hard to turn things around, but I don't know how much support she is getting in Columbus. One would think all those who love life so much would be behind her all the way ...

Here's a link to the legislation she proposed last year: http://www.ohiohouse.gov/emilia-strong-sykes/press/sykes-introduces-bill-to-reduce-ohios-infant-mortality-rate
