C-Sections and the Real Crime

April 12, 2004
By REBECCA JOHNSON


Prosecutors in Salt Lake City announced last week that they
had dropped charges of homicide against a woman who delayed
a Cesarean section despite doctors' advice that it was
necessary to save the lives of her twins. It was a step in
the right direction, but the decision to criminalize the
woman's choice - one of her twins was later delivered
stillborn, the other survived with complications, and the
mother has pleaded guilty to child endangerment - was wrong
from the start.

THANKS MS. DOULA for posting this.

I am so glad that this was published in the NYT.

I am so Thankful her charges were dropped. They were WRONG from the beginning.

I am sad for the author's loss and sooooo Thankful for her story and willingness to write it.
