The issue of midwife-assisted planned home-birth has been unresolved in Hungary for a long time. Despite well over ten years of efforts by activists, the area is still not regulated at all. Dr. Ágnes Geréb, qualified obstetrician and independent midwife, has been attenting home births in a legal vacuum for 2 decades. On Tuesday, October 5th, she was arrested and placed in remand custody after an incident whose details are as yet unclear. She is used to persecution as she has had her obstetrician's licence suspended in dubious circumstances and criminal proceedings are in progress against her based on other highly contested incidents, but this is the first time she was actually put in jail and paraded in handcuffs and ankle chains in court. The statement here: http://spacecollective.org/edanet was issued by a Hungarian organisation of doctors who promote choice and safety in childbirth. Don't make laws on the issue without her knowledge and assistance, because it kills the essence of free birth! Freedom for babies, freedom for mothers, freedom for Agi Gereb NOW! Please join to this Campaign! Thank you brothers and sisters!
