Get ready North American birthies because this Sunday you’ll be seeing the Mother of all Rallies coming to you from Australia. The government of Australia has had the temerity to threaten home birth choices and Australian families and midwifery supporters are coming out to the Parliament House in Canberra with a show of force that will wake up the world.
The rally will be Monday in Australia but the corresponding times in North America are:
Pacific Daylight: 6:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09
Mountain Daylight: 7:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09
Central Daylight: 8:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09
Eastern Daylight: 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09
Greenwich Mean Time: 1:00 a.m., Monday Sept 7, 2009
Please light a candle or otherwise hold vigil for this historic event. If you want to get more information visit the Australian alternative birth website: www.joyousbirth.info
What’s at issue: A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHERE, WHEN AND WITH WHOM SHE WILL GIVE BIRTH.
