Mississippi OB Files Motion to Reconsider HB207, The Midwife Safety Act
By Jill Arnold
HB207, also known as The Midwife Safety Act, passed the House yesterday afternoon by a very slim margin. Opponents, of course, relied heavily on the controversial, flawed meta-analysis conducted by Joseph Wax.
No sooner had supporters of the bill begun to celebrate did Rep. Sidney Bondurant file a Motion to Reconsider. Rep. Bondurant’s occupation?
The Mississippi Friends of Midwives is encouraging supporters to act now by calling and e-mailing representatives, urging them to support HB207 as passed yesterday in the House with a yes vote and that the bill should not be reconsidered.
