UPDATE on midwifery bill

Here’s the latest update on the midwifery bill (Senate 2636–A Bill to Establish a Board of Midwifery):
 

 

Our calls are continuing to make headway, HOWEVER, the docs have started calling AGAINST the bill, so YOUR CALLS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER!!! Now’s the time to REACH OUT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW especially if they live in the following key districts:
 
DiMasi                North End, downtown
Pedone              Worcester
Harkins              Needham, Dover, Medfield 
Rushing             parts of Cambridge and Boston
Koutoujian         parts of Watertown, Waltham, and Newton
Walrath              Hudson, Maynard, Stow, Bolton
 
These “key districts” are respresented by MA Reps who have the power to get the bill PASSED THIS SESSION
 
Of these key players, DiMasi (Speaker of the House) is most important followed by Rep. Koutoujian.
 
If you live or know anyone who lives in these areas, PLEASE HAVE THEM CALL TODAY, TOMORROW, OR EARLY NEXT WEEK (YES!!! CALLING OVER THE WEEKEND OR AFTER HOURS AND LEAVING A MESSAGE IS FINE!!)
 
PLEASE KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!!!  We all need to continue pulling out all the stops and asking EVERYONE we know to CALL NOW on behalf of the bill.
 
When you call your Rep. please ask him/her to sign onto Rep. Khan’s letter in support of the bill AND, most importantly, please ask them to vote FOR the bill if it comes to the Floor this session.  When you’ve made your call, please email info@mfom.org to let us know who you called and what their response was.
 
The Bill Alert mail is reposted below.  It gives details on how to find your Rep’s contact info. and has a sample “script” of what to say when you call.
 
KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!!!  ALL OUR EFFORTS ARE MAKING PROGRESS!!!
 
SPREAD THE WORD!!!
