I'm really hoping a good look is taken at this issue. Something tells me though that all rational evidence will be ignored in favor of more "managed" pregnancies and deliveries instead of looking at countries with better outcomes and realizing that much of it has to do with a better care model involving less c-sections, more midwives and even a decent percentage of *gasp* out-of-hospital births.
