Since I've been stuck at home all day I've been watching a lot more TV than usual. I end up watching stuff I don't normally watch; like A Baby Story and 16 & Pregnant. Let me just say, it is really disgusting to see how these shows make light of things like voluntary inductions and c-sections. On 16 & Pregnant yesterday, the girl wanted an induction at 37 weeks because she didn't like how her body looked; AND THE DOCTOR AGREED TO DO IT! I wonder how much influence shows like this have on real-life decision making. I'm sure many women (especially those who don't do their research) see these shows and think that's just the way it's done. The fact that some doctors actually concede to their patients over such self-centered reasoning just blows my mind.
