One pregnant mom thinks so.
She had her first and third children vaginally, but a placenta eruption caused her to have an emergency cesarean with her second.
Joy thinks it is against her legal rights to force her to have unnecessary surgery that might place her and her baby at greater risk of harm than delivering naturally. In fact, she's so mad that she has written the following message on her minivan:
"Page Hospital enter my body without my permission ... sounds like rape to me!"
"My doctor doesn't have a problem with me having natural delivery, but said that the hospital does," Joy told the Lake Powell Chronicle. "The fact that I successfully had a VBAC two years ago lowers my risk for rupture, but that doesn't matter since the hospital has decided that all VBACs have to have an 'elective C-section.' I think my definition of 'elective' differs from theirs because I don't want this."
Do you think the hospital should be allowed to force Joy to have a C-section or not?
