Wow. I don't know if I could keep my mouth shut. But it would ultimately depend on how close we were. If not very close, I'd offer some info on why an induction is rather risky and maybe show her some statistics on inductions and how 50% of them end up in c-section. It's like flipping a coin on whether or not you'll be cut open. I might also show them BOBB or Pregnant in America ... (BOBB is probably better for that). Just maybe a non-confrontational approach to opening her eyes a little to the fact that this really isn't about how uncomfortable she is right now. It's about the health of the baby and herself. And if she thinks she's uncomfortable now, just wait till she's had a million interventions and then a c-section. It would probably be pretty traumatic for her, too, considering she probably has no idea what to expect, ya know and hearing your baby is having trouble is terrifying.

Anyway.... it would really depend on how well I knew them for me to say something.
