Columbus—Today, State Senator Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) issued the following statement regarding National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which is observed every year on October 15.
“It is important to recognize the unbearable loss so many parents experience across the country and to provide support to those who have lost a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS and other causes,” said Senator Yuko. “Within our Senate family we have recently lost one of our own. No one should have to experience the pain that comes with losing a baby.”
