Grassroots Network additions about AP article

Dear Friends,

Breaking News: The Associated Press has just put out on the wire a very good (and accurate as far as I can tell) article "Home-birth advocates press pro-midwife campaign"! You can read it here.

This article is likely to be picked up by many newspapers, making many opportunities to comment in letter to the editor, on blogs, etc. Also, don't hesitate to mention it on e-lists, blogs, facebook, etc. and respond to what others write.

The article mentions The Big Push for Midwives, and particularly notes the Inauguration Day e-mail blast. Among other things, the author noted the high cost of hospital births, and the low costs of home births for healthy mothers.
