America is not doing enough to prevent preterm births -- according to the latest report card from the March of Dimes.  The nation received a "D" on the report card, and so did the state of Iowa.  No state got an "A".  The grades are based on preterm delivery rate.  The goal is to have less than 8-percent of all births premature.  Right now the country stands at 12-percent.
