1 For just a little taste of this pervading attitude, look at this article in USA Today about the increase in Cesarean rates in the US. Although I don't want to go into detail about my thoughts on this (at least not right now), I want to state that I do believe that some Cesareans and other medical interventions are medically necessary to preserve the health and safety of mother and baby, but as the article states, some of the reasons for c-sections are dubious at best (convenience in delivery timing, fear of malpractice).
