Letter from a friend:
I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed. The AMA ( American Medical Association ) is seeking to pass legislation that would make home birthing ILLEGAL. Not for home birthing *midwives*, but for the women choosing home birth. They could potentially be looking at jail time if any of this passes. Our choices are slowly but surely being taken from us, and it's time to put a stop to it. Whether or not you agree with home birthing, please sign the petition to keep birthing rights in the hands that they belong in - the women giving birth. Here is the petition:

I really think this is an important cause, and I'd like to encourage you to add your signature, too. It's free and takes less than a minute of your time.

This is more than about medicine, it's about our rights to choose life and what's best for our babies...
