Well, Washington state was always full of a lot of ‘progressives’, but I don’t suppose that’s the sort of birth defect they were thinking of.
That year, Barron encountered two cases of babies born with anencephaly – a neural tube birth defect that causes infants to be born without certain areas of the brain and skull. A devastating condition that affects only one or two babies out of every 10,000 pregnancies, anencephaly occurs when the upper part of the neural tube doesn’t close all the way during the first month of pregnancy.
On the other hand, I could be wrong.
