Live in Illinois? The home birth act needs your help this AM

Via the Big Push:

ATTENTION ILLINOIS RESIDENTS & ANYONE WITH FAMILY/FRIENDS IN ILLINOIS.

It is VITAL that everyone re-call your state reps in Springfield ASAP and try to find at least a few friends/family members who will call between 9 and 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 17. We need to FLOOD the capitol with calls during that time.

  • If your state rep already support the Home Birth Safety Act, please thank them for their past support and ask them to remain strong with us.
  • If your state rep is iffy or unknown, ask them how they will vote and send a text report to the phone number below.

People who live in Illinois can find their reps here.

Please call Springfield as soon as you see this PushAlert, and then call as many people in Illinois as you can to remind them to call right away between 9 and 11 a.m. PST on Wednesday, November 17!

The Home Birth Safety Act would allow the licensing and regulation of Certified Professional Midwives in Illinois. CPMs are not currently allowed to practice legally in IL. More background here.

    Thank you for spreading the word! Folks in Illinois have been working for legal access to midwives for 30 years (THIRTY YEARS!!!!) and it is so crucial that we pass this now!
