I routinely see articles about childbirth and the liability issues, etc. where medical decisions are made for legal reasons, and how it is hard for doctors to make the decisions they want to based on the fear of getting sued, but they aren't usually in more mainstream-type sources.

But, yesterday, someone forwarded me an article in consumer reports - which I guess I don't read CR enough to know why childbirth is one of their reports - I previously have only used them for thinking about appliance purchases.

What I find particularly frustrating, as I read the article, is that we knew these things back in the 1970's! This is nothing new. This is information that was lost, rediscovered, lost again, and now re-rediscovered. Battles won, then lost, and now having to be fought again. What a waste.
