I don’t know any details of this case but it seems strange. Why would they deny it?
Is this going to lead to them closing down hatzolah?

Hatzolah used their clout to make sure that ezras noshim does not succeed. While I personally would call hatzola, (their response time, etc..) I dont think its ok to shut down ezras noshim. Ruchie Freier knows her rights, and she will get this to happen. What does not kill them outright, will make ezras noshim stronger.

Whether or not that is true

I’ve heard some horror stories about Hatzalah too, the most recent one I heard told to me by a member of the family involved. this is not to denigrate, but an unfortunate fact of life in emergency service industry.

The battle for something urgent and important

Ezras Noshim was initiated by competent, trained individuals to perform a specific and very important service for the women who choose to use that service. Anyone in the community who tried to interfere, whatever their own motivation, did not accomplish anything good no matter how they try to convince the world.

hatzalah was established with extraordinary effort for the purpose of saving lives. To try to establish hatzalah services for feminist reasons is outrageous.
