people who support choices for birth.: Call and write representatives

This petition had 7,051 supporters

Help us protect the rights of mothers and families in the Charleston area and across the state of South Carolina. Women and families have the right to choose safe, natural birthing methods. The SC Department of Health and Environmental Services (SC DHEC) is taking away the birthing rights of women in our state in less than 15 days time. New interpretations of existing regulations  will mean the loss of license for SC Birth Centers like the Charleston Birth Place. There has been no change to the actual regulation, just to the interpretation. Charleston Birth Place has followed the regulations with positive outcomes for over six years. Closing the doors of the Charleston Birth Place leaves many women seeking a birth experience outside of the hospital at risk of having unassisted births. The recent reinterpretation of regulations is unfounded and without explanation from SC DHEC. Like us on Facebook (Campaign to save Charleston Birth Place) or visit our website for more details.   Support South Carolina women's right to choose how they bring their babies into the world by signing our petition.
