I just saw this research and it made me think of our discussion:

ACOG - Study Finds Adverse Effects of Pitocin in Newborns

It looks like there are some direct side effects to infants of using pitocin, separate from the reasons leading to induction. Nothing horrible that would cause doctors not to use it when medically necessary, but another caution against using it electively.
