Apr 22, 2016 — Yesterday, by unanimous vote, the Senate Health Committee removed the VBAC ban amendment from HB 1360 which will continue to keep midwifery legal in Colorado. Many midwives, mothers, advocates and their supporters testified in support of both the safety and the right of mothers to choose VBAC at home.
The signatures on this petition and the many comments definitely swayed the opinions of the Senators, and the strong testimony yesterday sealed the deal.
The bill still must be heard in the full Senate, and there is the possibility of amendments being added. We're asking Colorado residents to contact their State Senator and ask them to vote YES on HB1360 as it is presented to them from the committee.
Thank you again to everyone who signed, shared, and supported this grass-roots movement!
