She was hoping for natural labor, but due to an emergency situation needs to be induced asap. Which induction meds should she stear clear of and which should she say yes to? She's in hospital now. Please help!!
Some induction meds have been linked to an increased chance of uterine rupture, but depending on the circumstances, there may still be good reasons to use them. We don't have all the factors here. If it's an emergency requiring an immediate induction, your SIL needs to work with her doctors, not third-hand advice from a message board.
The best person to advise your sister is her doctor. They will be able to take in all the factors of your sister's case and make the best recommendation. She can ask the doctor why s/he recommends that specific type of induction and if there are others that would be better. If she is uncertain, she can also ask for the doctor to consult with a colleague.

Also, there's some induction drugs with awful reputations that are, nonetheless, the right choice in certain situations. That's my big concern, that the whole internet will basically tell you OMG NO! on, say, cytotec, but depending on the situation, cytotec might actually be the best option.
