    Re: Pregnant Women Warned: Consent to Surgical Birth or Else

    I wonder which procedure adds tons of money to doctors and the hospitals pockets....

    OMG, I am so sorry she was treated so badly. That is just inexcusable, what they did.

    She was a lot more careful in picking her doctors after that, so, thankfully, the rest of her deliveries went fairly smoothly (from what she's told me, anyway). It doesn't change the absolutely horrific nature of her first experience though.

    If nothing else, however, I guess I have some idea of what to watch out for when it comes my own wife at least. That was actually the major reason she told me the story in the first place.

    It's never been her philosophy to hide that kind of thing simply because some might view it as being "socially improper."

    At issue here is whether or not a provider can be compelled to provide care (they can) and under what circumstances.

    This is not a case of someone trying to force a provider to perform a service they are not prepared to perform, such as one they lack experience, training or equipment that is needed. This hospital has and does provide medical services for women who deliver babies "naturally". However, the details show that the woman had contraindications for a VBAC. So the issue here is "at what point are doctors allowed to refuse to perform a service and on what grounds are they allowed to do so?"
    I have no problem with them refusing to provide a procedure they feel is not in the best interest of the patient - I have a HUGE problem with them forcing a procedure on anyone who is mentally competent and with them calling children's services because a pregnant woman would prefer to try a natural method before resorting to surgical.
