(410 ILCS 250/1) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 2101)
    Sec. 1. It is hereby declared to be the policy of the State of Illinois that the prevention of perinatal mortality and conditions leading to developmental disabilities and other disabilities is a high priority for attention. Efforts to reduce the incidence of perinatal risk factors by early identification and management of the high risk woman of childbearing age, fetus and newborn will not only decrease the predisposition to disability but will also prove to be a cost-effective endeavor, reducing State and private expenditures for the care and maintenance of those persons whose disability was a result of perinatal risk factors.
