What a crazy world we live in.

I belong to a yahoo group for South Australian Home Schoolers.

One of the members bought to our attention the two bills that are about to be passed in Australia will make it illegal for midwives to attend home births and will face fines up to $30000.

Now just before I go on, I have never had a home birth and would probably never have one. All my labours have been long and hard. I don't dilate well and have needed intervention nearly every time.

That said though I do believe a women should have a choice in which setting she gives birth to her child. If a women wants to give birth at home, she should be allowed to.

This is taking away true freedom. If we can give a women the "freedom" to abort her baby why can't she have the freedom to choose where to give birth.

I am signing The petition against this and urge all other Australians to do so too.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
