Important website & petition regarding Cytotec

This is an announcement of a new website that has articles and links about birth interventions. It was in the latest Midwifery Today. At first glance it looks like a useful site.

Please go to the FDA petition & sign it & then forward the link to your friends. This mis-use of a drug & abuse of women has to be stopped! I know there is an OB here in town (San Diego, CA) that uses it standard for all of his patients at 38 1/2 weeks. Shocking, but true!

Because misoprostol ("miso," "Cytotec") is being used more and more—without informed consent for induction and without being FDA-approved for use on pregnant women, a mother, Maddy Oden—who lost her daughter and grand-daughter because of this drug—has developed this Web site for us all. Maddy started the Tatia Oden French Memorial Foundation after her daughter, Tatia, and Tatia's daughter, Zorah, died after being given Cytotec. The foundation is dedicated to empowering woman, specifically in the area of childbirth.

The Web site is and the e-mail is
