ST. JOES: Women are baby factories
It’s simple. The best thing for all you gals is the same — maintain your fertility — regardless of the risks to you and yours.
The NCJ reports a “near-ban” on permanent birth control at the Eureka and other St. Joe’s hospitals:
Gynecologists are “incensed” by the hospital’s efforts to stop them from honoring patients’ requests to be sterilized, said Dr. Cherrie Andersen, and several doctors have spurned requests to take over as the next chief of staff for gynecology…
The new rules circulated at Thursday’s meeting said that doctors could not use a woman’s age, her psychological condition or the number of her previous pregnancies as medical grounds for sterilization. Doctors also would not be allowed to sterilize women whose future pregnancies might worsen serious heart, kidney or other conditions.
Sorry little Billy, Mommy suffered a pointless, preventable death because some superstitious geezers on Rome want it that way.
