What role does the public play in determining the practice rights of midwives, and how does this role impact the AMA's position on the subject?
Midwife practice is presently governed by state regulations, and these are influenced by advocacy organizations, including the AMA. As an advocacy organization, AMA is not much interested in the public or other organizations opinions.
Possibly this might give you some insights.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
