The St. Louis Dispatch ran an article put out by the Associated Press regarding the 8th Circuit's grant of rehearing in Nelson v. Norris, the case where Shawanna Nelson was shackled during her labor and delivery.

How can we claim to support a culture of life if we don’t value the women who give that life?

To answer this and related questions National Advocates for Pregnant Women and more than 60 organizational and individual co-sponsors are holding the National Summit to Ensure the Health and Humanity of Pregnant and Birthing Women, January 18- Sunday, January 21, 2007 at the Hilton Airport Atlanta, Atlanta, GA.

There are over twenty plenaries and workshops at the Summit addressing the question of how we do or do not value pregnant women and mothers.
