I just came across this piece and thought it was interesting: http://www.improvingbirth.org/2014/02/versus/ It starts off by talking about the variability of access to care and the quality of birthing options across the country. It ends with this: Transparency and collaboration can make birth safer in all of these settings, but it can’t happen in a hostile environment. If we can let go of our own biases of where women “should” give birth, maybe we can start making birth safer in all of those locations.
I find this statement interesting, because it does seem to me that there is debate with many topics because people don't acknowledge that people on the opposing side have good reasons for their choices, and have put time and research into the topic. There seems to be this idea that if someone chooses what clearly appears as an inferior choice to the other person, it must be because the chooser is ignorant or doesn't care.
