(NaturalNews) Big Pharma has taken the blessed event of childbirth and is turning it into a medical procedure. The general attitude in a normal hospital birth is more like treating a disease rather than a natural, healthy and inspiring event. Medical personnel rush to the labor and delivery ward and operating arena for a 'rescue operation' with the intensity of urgency rating upwards of a cataclysmic event with major casualties.
Doctors and medical staff across the nation are cutting into mothers and poking them and the newborns with needles and objects against their will. They do this through systematic bullying, fear tactics, demanding, threats, intimidation, isolation and even physical attacks and drugging. When this is done to a mother against her will - while she is laboring and weak in contractions - that mother and child are victims of birth rape.
What is birth rape?
Birth rape happens when any medical doctor, nurse or other personnel insert anything into or cut into any part of women in labor, delivering a baby, or after birth against her wishes. Even administering an enema to a laboring mother against her will can be birth rape. Birth rape happens when mothers are laboring and weak and either not able to say "NO," or sometimes even when she says "Don't!"
Ignoring the mother's resistance to or rejection of a method of penetration: injection, enema, forceps, incision, suction, etc. is a crime against a woman's civil rights of peace, equality and privacy inside the body. Even the medical extraction of placenta after birth is often unnecessary because the nutrient-rich placenta is naturally and spontaneously expelled after the birth, and no hurry is necessary in a normal delivery.
Of course, the well trained medic has "their good reason," citing the "need" of the patient, all the while causing pain, shock and suffering with their attacks into the body. Medical birth rape is rationalized as "for her own good" and these body invasions can cause painful trauma and long lasting harm to both mother and child.
One out of three babies now cut out of the womb
The most common surgeries in U.S. hospitals today are C-section deliveries. Nationally, about one in three births are now by C-section. 2008 estimates by Intermountain Healthcare claim almost 500,000 C-sections in the U.S. were potentially unnecessary. C-sections rates have increased by more than 50 percent since the 1990s while the incidents of birth related trauma injuries to the child have not fallen.
OB-GYN Mitchell Maiman, MD, chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Staten Island University Hospital, near New York City, believes a large percentage of C-sections performed in the U.S. are "not medically necessary." Maiman says "The fact is, physicians are the ones demanding the C-sections for their own convenience and because of the medical-legal climate. If something goes wrong and they get sued, the question is always, 'Why didn't you do a C-section?'"
The cost of C-sections
C-section births come with a price of obesity in children with doubled increase in obesity at age three in a study from Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. C-section delivery has also recently been linked to an increased risk for allergy and asthma.
C-section births not only come with increased medical complications for the mother and baby but also carry a much larger price tag at almost double the money. At the nonprofit Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Medical Center, new mothers have a nine percent chance of birth by C-section while at the for-profit Los Angeles Community Hospital, new mothers face a 47 percent chance of getting a C-section.
How to avoid birth rape
The best way to avoid birth rape, medical birthing procedures and unnecessary C-sections, is to avoid hospitals for the event of childbirth. Seek out a reputable natural birthing center and experienced midwife. Better yet, have that childbirth at home and invite your midwife to attend.
