I was just coming on to post this. Important information. Most disturbing, though, was this line--

“We should do inductions for good solid medical reasons, not for convenience or the day of the week,” Dr. Macones said. “Sometimes patients push you.”

I wonder what percentage of c-sections are patient originated? If you look at the 20%-30% rough increase in numbers from 1990s (when no patient, for the most part, could really ask for a c-section) to today, it couldn't really be more than 10% (and I'm sure it's less).

Did anyone write a letter to the Times challenging her statement? I don't feel I'm the right person to do that, but it really bothered me.
