HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 

 

REQUESTING THE GOVERNOR TO STUDY THE ROLE OF GESTATION ENVIRONMENTS, GENTLE BIRTHING PRACTICES, DOMESTIC HARMONY AWARENESS, AND APPROPRIATE AND SUFFICIENT TOUCH AND THEIR CONNECTION TO PUBLIC POLICY CONCERNS THAT INCLUDE SUBSTANCE ABUSE, ALCOHOLISM, AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

WHEREAS, the legislature finds that deliberation of societal issues such as abuse of controlled substances, alcoholism, and domestic violence are of concern; and

WHEREAS, it is relatively well-known and accepted that the internal and external well-being of a pregnant woman is correlated to the health and well-being of her unborn child; and

WHEREAS, it has been suggested that the experience of birth imprints the basic personality of a child; and

  WHEREAS, it has been asserted that domestic abuse, or a  lack of harmony in a child's domestic situation may correlate to a propensity for that child to domestically abuse in the future; and

WHEREAS, it has been suggested that appropriate and sufficient touch and human contact between an infant child and its parents and others is important to that child's development; now, therefore,

 

BE IT RESOLVED by the House of Representatives of the Twenty-second Legislature of the State of Hawaii, Regular Session of 2004, the Senate concurring, that the Office of the Governor is requested to study the role of gestational environments, gentle birthing practices, domestic harmony awareness-, and appropriate and sufficient touch and their connection' to reducing abuse of controlled substances, alcoholism, and domestic violence; and
