On home birth in Illinois.
I very much hope this legislation passes. I know many women who've given birth at home, with either a midwife or a doctor. Our family doctor used to deliver babies at home (he delivered my godson and several of my friends' babies) but he had to stop about 2 years ago due to high insurance premiums.

This quote, from a mother, I think, is the very root of the issue:
“It’s very woman-centered, totally different than what happens in the hospital,” she said. “I’m in charge of my labor and my pregnancy, not taking a back seat the way doctors want you to do.”



If this legislation passes, maybe my state will stop taking newborns away from their families simply because they were born at home.

There's no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold so he turned up the sun.
