Hey, thanks for verifying it. There goes my hope that it was all a hoax to raise attention to common obstetric practices, but it's good to know.

Yes, it's good that they're up front about it, but being honest doesn't excuse you for being a misogynist.

Right. Because those of us who hire carefully screened doulas and present a well-researched birth plan don't give a rat's arse about the quality of our deliveries or our the health and welfare of our children.

Gak! How insulting to women.
