    No - women aren't doctors. How could she know?

    You place your health and life in the hands of doctors because THEY went to medical school. THEY are supposed to know what to do. THEY are supposed to make the choice that is best FOR YOU.

    Apparently THEY do - if they aren't Catholic.

    Yea, at first I thought this might be a left wing outrage type article, I was skeptical at first. As I found out more I dont think it was an outrage piece, but true.

    The time between when the woman first went to the hospital and when she miscarried was less than 48 hours, and she was in extreme pain because the hospital failed to properly treat her.

    What kind of perverse train of thought leads some to believe that a woman in extreme pain should immediately go travel long distances to get a 2nd opinion?

    At the very LEAST I'd expect them to have checked her into the Labor-Unit. I mean seriously - monitor her and the baby. Things like internal bleeding can occur if the placenta detaches, etc. Breathing, blood-oxygen levels, etc etc etc.

    All of this just seems barbaric - there was no reason for them to SEND HER HOME. When your water breaks you should be CHECKED IN - labor, problem, whatever.

    I don't understand why they didn't even do that much. Just - nothing - not a damned thing was done right. WTF?

    Adding on: just a few months ago a friend of mind - then 3 months pregnant - had her water break. She went to the hospital and they kept her for a few days. Depending on how complete the rupture is, they might be able to stop or slow the loss. My friend was home a week later and she is *still pregnant* - Now it's high risk.

    The body will continually produce amniotic fluid when you truly go into labor so all is not lost just because a rupture has happened.

    But you MUST be monitored, must be watching 24/7, must be examined routinely and you CANNOT WALK AROUND. Being mobile will only hasten the problem. A small rupture might turn into a full break.

    The death of this woman's child *could have been prevented* - if they did the right thing. That's not a guarantee, but it might have been a possibility.

    This is an idiotic statement.

    We dont know the facts of the case-we know what an apparently ignorant woman told a "journalist".

    As of now-I apply the same amount of credibility to this as I do to that lesbian waiter who didn't get a tip.

    Hospitals dont treat anyone. Practitioners do.

    That's a bit of a stretch, but I haven't seen anything here yet that indicates where the woman's family doctor or doctor providing prenatal care is all of this or if she consulted with him/her and what advice that person gave.

    Fact remains that Catholic hospitals have a constitutional right not to perform abortions and in my view, her own doctor should have been instructing her what to do should something go wrong and where to go. I also find it hard to believe that in a city of almost 40,000 there's only one hospital, a Catholic one, and no other medical facilities capable of serving this woman's needs.

    Yeah - well I always hope such things aren't true at all. I hope it's just another made up string of bull.

    But I'm more bothered by the idea that, if it is true, then she went it either having fully broken her water, or partially broken her water, and they sent her home.

    It would be nice if this was all made up and 100% fakeo.

    The entire premise is to attack religious based hospitals-not to advocate for care.
