Amanda P.'s Fundraiser:

"Kelly," Who Had a Forced Episiotomy, Goes to Court

BENEFITING: Improving Birth

ORGANIZER: Improving Birth

THE STORY:

Improving Birth wrote -

"Kelly," whose forced episiotomy was caught on video here, has not yet secured an attorney. Her statute of limitations runs out at the beginning of May.

She will be filing suit against her doctor, representing herself.

We must raise at least $1,500 in the next 10 days to cover the filing fees, process server fees, lost wages for Kelly to take off work, and travel expenses from where Kelly now lives, several hours away from where she had her baby.  

She is being supported every step of the way by a team that includes the president and vice president of Improving Birth and representatives (including lawyers) from Human Rights in Childbirth and the Birth Rights Bar Association, who have volunteered thousands of dollars worth of time and resources.

Please help Kelly meet this deadline and get her lawsuit filed.  This initial $1,500 is a fraction of the estimated cost to litigate her case (up to $100,000), but it’s a necessary step if she will ever be able to seek justice in a court of law.

Thank you for your support!
