Governor Perdue Declares Fetal Alcohol Awareness Day
RALEIGH – To draw attention to the only 100-percent preventable birth defect, Gov. Bev Perdue has declared Sunday, Sept. 9, to be Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Awareness Day, with events scheduled across the state.
“Too many of our children are born into a life of frustration, through no fault of their own, because of the choices their mothers made,” Gov. Perdue said. “Any woman who is pregnant, or believes she may be pregnant, should check with her doctor before consuming any alcohol. Your baby’s life is too important to do otherwise.”
