Liebrals and Demoflops Want to Blow Out Your Wife's Vagina... FOR WHAT?

Bookmark and Share


There was an excellent two-part article in the Minneapolis-St. Paul’s Star Tribune.

Part 1: High-tech births vs. nature’s way

Part 2: Midwives are common, c-sections rare


The comments on the first article are ridiculous and feature the usual suspects who call the woman interviewed in the article crazy and selfish for wanting a VBAC, pontificate that refusing an unnecessary cesarean is morally objectionable and, hey, what about all of the fat people? Shouldn’t the fat women exercise so they won’t have a c-section?


But the real gem was left on the second half of the article.


Foobarxyz has been talking to Dick Morris.

Hmmm. I guess there's nothing else to say. Well, other than WHAT THE HELL??!?!?

That comment makes my head hurt. Owie.

Also, I hate hate hate it when doctors (hell, anyone) say (like in the first part) "women are always asking when they can be induced." No, they aren't always asking that. Some do, many don't, and some are even coerced into it.

*le sigh*

I'm now moving to St Paul. Any want to start a commune out there with me?

Damn, I'm going to miss sunny and hot Florida.

I'm sorry, but that comment just cracks me up. Maybe it's my mood, but it's just so, um, nonsensical. What is this death panel he is talking about? So confusing!

WOW. That is just, wow. That's art right there. Speaking as a proud Demoflop.

Oh joy I love newspaper commenters- my hometown had to disable the comments section entirely b/c it was a constant sludgefest of crazy talk. They are the LCD of web commenters. Sometimes I love to go to a juicy story and join the melee. I like to say: you sound dumb. I did though like the article. I think the writer did a good job presenting facts in a way that did not paint a picture of selfish, experience seeking mothers- but pulled back the curtain a wee bit in favor of what we all know- the maternity care system needs fixin'.

If i wasn't busy getting my Grandma ready for her death panel visit I'd go there and tell the kiddie pool dude that he sounds dumb.

@SaaneneMother - I agree on the newspaper commenters part. From what I've read the folks who typically comment on the articles in our newspaper are a whole new brand of crazy.

I noticed that most of the comments AGAINST Mrs Lund's choice repeatedly stated that they'd rather 'have a healthy baby with interventions than risk their baby's/own/wife's lives by avoiding them... How can they repeatedly miss the parts about how the interventions are dangerous, too, often more so, depending on the situation??? It really, really, speaks to how ingrained into our psyche is the idea that the expert and the technology are always the best/safest/most informed. (It would be NICE if all of our experts were in fact experts, (read: well informed, experienced, able to make decisions and judgements based on real info/evidence/probabilities, committed to consider the individual issue as a whole, uninfluenced by fear or petty concerns...) but technology?? Fails all the time, i don't understand our inherent trust of it...)

The lieberals comment must have been removed, as it is no longer on either of those stories comments pages.
