Bloggers: Get thee to the Huffington Post NOW!

The AMA (American Medical Association) passed a resolution that they are going to create model legislation that states that the hospital is the safest place to have a baby. It doesn't specifically "outlaw" homebirth, but whenever their is leg like this, it opens the door to criminalizing the other than (think child endangerment to have your baby at home). So that is what all the media is about. Watch for Ricki on Good Morning America on Saturday and post a comment to the Huffington Post. We need lots of comments to keep this story alive, so pass this on to all who care about homebirth!!
P.S. You have to set up an account to post a comment, and they said you would get a confirmation email. I never got the email but could start posting anyway. Go for it!
The HuffPo post is Docs to Women: Pay no attention to Ricki Lake's Homebirth
