Upcoming AFC events and FIRST meeting!

While the U.S. has one of the most advanced health care systems in the world, it also has the second-highest infant mortality rate of any industrialized nation. Midwives preside over most births throughout Europe and Japan, but less than 10% of American births, despite their proven record of care and success. The Women’s Resource Center and Advocates for Choice are starting off the semester with a showing of “The Business of Being Born,” a documentary that explores the history of obstetrics, the role and history of Midwives, and how many common medical practices may be doing new mothers more harm than good. Please attend on Tuesday, January 26 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Women’s Resource Center (on corner of Lincoln Highway and Normal).

Similarly, Advocates for Choice, a student organization dedicated to educating the university community about reproductive health and access issues, will have its first meeting of the semester here at the Women's Resource Center on Monday, January 25 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. To learn more about this growing group, e-mail or find us on Facebook.

Look forward to seeing you at this and/or many of the other upcoming Women’s Resource Center and Advocates for Choice events.
