A note on Sotomayor

I haven't posted on the Sotomayor story because it's already been so widely covered. But I do have one thing to add to the existing commentary. Sotomayor is a former member of the board of directors for Maternity Center Association (now called Childbirth Connection), which is a group that advocates for evidence-based maternity care, fostering informed decisions and control of maternity care on the part of mothers, and increased birthing options and midwife education in the U.S. And that kicks ass.

  1. I love this. There was some widespread concern amongst the media this morning regarding her stance on abortion (or lack thereof, at least publicly), but this absolves me of any fears I may have had.
