Free Madhuri started this petition to Ghulam Nabi Azad (MINISTER OF HEALTH and FAMILY WELFARE, GOVERNMENT OF INDIA) and

The international community and UN agencies have been emphasising the importance of safe delivery and emergency obstetric care for which it is essential that the poor come to hospitals and receive good quality services. It is necessary to ensure that services for childbirth and Emergency Obstetric Care are of the highest quality so that women are assured safe delivery and reduction maternal mortality and morbidity. This is one of the key MDG indicators and India along with the rest of the Community of Nations is committed to achieving these indicators by 2015.

The National Rural Health Mission has been promoting institutional delivery and now more than 12 million women have their deliveries in hospitals. Millions of women face the risk of poor quality services, disrespectful services and demands for bribes . BUT there are no grievance redressal or accountability mechanisms. Now the Government wants to take away to right to protest as well!
