The Skeptical OB asks an interesting question.
Why won’t the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) release their data on the safety of home births facilitated by their midwives?
[MANA has] publicly announced that only those who pass an ideological litmus test and sign a legal non-disclosure agreement will be allow access to the data.
Birth freedom is most certainly a feminist issue.
Withholding important information makes it impossible for women to make an informed choice about how they want to give birth. And an uninformed choice is no choice at all.
I don’t see how MANA’s policy can possibly be compatible with feminism.
Make public the data!
