Vickie has been a competent, compassionate midwife for over 30 years. She has seen over 1,000 babies enter safely into this world, and has served women and babies with her whole heart and soul. She is now being accused of a truly horrendous crime that her gentle hands could never commit. Please show your love and support to Vickie by contributing to her legal fees and by posting words of encouragement for her to hear. Thank you.
**Many of you are asking for more information about the case. Obviously due to HIPPA and other legal reasons, we can not offer up any more information than has already be presented by the press. Here is an article that will hopefully shed a bit of light on things for those with questions. http://www.thespectrum.com/story/news/local/2014/06/05/midwife-accused-manslaughter-gets-support-moms-everywhere/9998403/
**MORE INFO ON OPERATION MIDWIFE CRISIS**
Operation Midwife Crisis
On April 8th 2013 police officers for the Iron County Sheriff department, Cedar City Police Department, Iron county Search and Rescue , Utah Highway Patrol and cadaver dogs form several counties converged in the parking lot of a local LDS church at 8:30 in the morning. They met to coordinate a raid of a community midwife’s home and business. They dubbed their raid ‘Operation Midwife Crisis’. In the search warrant the officers were instructed to search for 5 clandestine graves of babies that midwife Vickie Sorensen had been accused of burying in her back yard. There were no graves, and the case was dropped by the Sheriff’s department, but just over a year later the Cedar City Police Department arrested Vickie on manslaughter charges brought against her by a local Obstetrician.
So, why did we put this title of the T-shirts that we have for sale?
**Because there is a Midwifery Crisis in the United States.**
Midwives from nearly every state are being investigated, criminally charged, arrested and prosecuted for doing nothing more than supporting women in their childbirth choices. We hope that by winning this unjust case against Vickie, we will provide a powerful example of hope to midwives and birthing families everywhere. Thank you so much for your donation, God bless you.
