Obstetric fistula is a devastating childbirth injury that affects millions of new mothers around the world. In many cases, the baby is stillborn and the mother is left with both the emotional trauma off the loss of her child and the serious implications of her fistula injuries.

Obstetric fistula is both treatable and preventable, but we need key legislation to pass in order to make sure women around the world have access to treatment and resources regarding this serious condition. The Obstetric Fistula Prevention, Treatment, Hope, and Dignity Restoration Act (H.R. 2888) would require the government to allocate funding toward implementing fistula prevention methods, treatment, and assistance in recovery. Take a stand for women and sign the petition supporting the new legislation that will help women cope with this devastating condition.

Dear Representative Karen Maloney:

I commend you in taking a strong step toward eradicating a devastating condition called obstetric fistula.

Obstetric fistula is a hole in a pregnant woman's birth canal caused by severe childbirth. The results are urinary or fecal incontinence which can be highly isolating and embarrassing for the mother.

The Obstetric Fistula Prevention, Treatment, Hope, and Dignity Restoration Act of 2011 (H.R. 2888) would require the government to allocate funding toward implementing fistula prevention methods, treatment, and assistance in recovery. Since fistula often occurs due to sub-standard or absent medical treatment, government funding is necessary to make sure the women that need care the most are receiving it.

Please continue to fight on behalf of expectant mothers everywhere. Thank you.
