I was watching the 7PM news last night and was filled with sadness and anger upon watching this report:
Baby dies shortly after Mom delivers.
Apparently, on October 18 this pregnant woman started to feel labor pains. So her husband took her to the hospital. Upon arriving there, none of the staff nurses or doctors paid any attention to her. THey only attended to her after her 14th hour of labor. According to the preganant lady, she could no longer bear the pain and was requesting the doctor attending to her to deliver the baby via c-section already. *now for the bomb* The doctor said that a c-section would not be possible because she did not have the money to pay for it. So she labored somemore and finally delivered the next day -- but the baby died because of fetal distress and since it took so long for the baby to come out, the baby was poisoned by it's own feces.
This was the woman's first baby. She carried the baby for 9 months in her womb without any complications.
What is that all about?!?
In the interview that followed the report, the woman admitted that she really did not have enough money to pay for a c-section. But does that give anybody the right to prevent a baby from living? What kind of doctor would do that? As of press time, the hospital had not released any formal statement yet.
It is just so frustrating and disgusting. Sad. You know?
