Irene and Adriane crafted a very strong statement, I appreciate their perspectives and their work to craft this important statement that supports this vulnerable segment of our popultaion.  I have nothing further to add to the statement.

i agree that Irene and Adriene have crafted a strong statement.  I don't think the current version needs any more work and I fully support this going forward.
