What REALLY bothers me about her, is that she does not appear to really be interested in improving women's health care. All she ever does is preach statistics about how dangerous birth is, and never makes steps to collaborate and work towards a goal of making things safer.
I wish for once she would engage in aspects of these conversations that actually discuss what needs to be changed. But it's always the same old thing. She's a broken record.
What I love is that she's recently started writing over at Science Based Medicine. (I've been telling everybody about this!) I enjoy reading the comments there. For people of her "caliber"... I assumed she hoped to find people falling over themselves to agree with her. But they sure are calling her on her.. how she says "mis-truths, half-truths and out right lies".
You give someone enough rope, they'll hang themselves.
Here's a from that same site...where Amy proposes that MIdwifes are anti research and don't use it in their practice...many of the responses are actually showing that ob's may do the same thing:) I'm just finding it amusing
