Abstract: ISSUE is the newsletter of the Midwifery Task Force, which is an "interdisciplinary group dedicated to working toward the legal recognition of midwifery in Ontario." The first ISSUE contains reports from the various regions of Canada regarding the status of midwifery, reviews of books and Judy Chicago's Birth Project and various news pieces and announcements. One of the groups described is Choice in Childbirth (C in C), and organization which "supports the right of all parents to determine the circumstances in which birth takes place." Its members believe that their basic rights about birth issues are being infringed upon, and that choices are being taken from their hands. The group "believes that parents must retain the basic right and responsibility to make decisions about their lives and health. As concerned health-care consumers, parents involved with C in C wish to see the current trends toward increased medical control reversed."
