The rally for today has been postponed, due to internal strategy conversations with the parties involved. I’ll post updates once I get any.
Choices in Childbirth is holding a rally tomorrow in support of Julie Finefrock.
Julie is the wife of an SEIU employee who is 6 months pregnant and would like to have a homebirth with a midwife. Despite the fact that NY State has mandated that private insurance companies cover homebirth, SEIU’s insurance does not (they have a loop hole because they are self-insured…it’s a bit complicated). Anyways, Julie has appealed and tomorrow is her hearing.
Attend the rally (info below) or sign the petition.
Rally info: March 18th, 2009
Outside SEIU’s offices, SEIU 32BJ, 101 Avenue of the Americas, NYC.
