Midwifery Bill - Information

We have been hearing from our Lobbyist at the state house that the Mass Medical Society and medical providers from the American Medical Association have been speaking out against our bill...ALOT. They do not want to see us regulated or even practicing. They do not want homebirth to be a choice. This affects you! They are a powerful group and we only have until March 19th to get our bill moving out the Public Health Committee or it simply dies there. We need your help, we need to CREATE A STIR!!!! The two guys in charge need to hear from us, we need to annoy them so bad they get our bill going! Flood their inbox, keep their phone ringing! >> >> Currently, our bill is awaiting approval from the Public Health Committee. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. It only takes THREE MINUTES. >> >> 1.
