How the March of Dimes Fights Birth Defects
Description:
In this article for a New Jersey newspaper, Apgar discussed traditional beliefs that mothers were at fault when their children were born with defects or undesirable characteristics (e.g., the "wrong" gender). She explained how recent research had "made mincemeat" of such assumptions, and how the March of Dimes planned to sponsor research exploring the father's genetic responsibility in such cases.
