(NaturalNews) In America today, it is acceptable to treat birth like a disease. With little regard for human life and natural body processes, the American medical establishment drugs and mutilates expectant mothers.

Ironically, the natural way, through the care of a midwife, is becoming the illegal way in many states. Backwards laws that prohibit midwife practice, assist the American medical establishment in gaining control over birth as they use caesarean section and drugs as their money-driving force.

Caesarean section procedures more than quintuple

In a 21 year period, the U.S. cesarean rate rose from 4.5 percent in 1965 to 24.1 percent in 1986.

In 2001, cesarean section was the most common ob-gyn surgical procedure. Approximately four million births occur annually in America. 24 percent (960,000) are delivered by cesarean section. In perspective, the Netherlands perform cesarean section on eight percent of births, suggesting 640,000 cesarean sections in America are absolutely unnecessary. This high risk mutilating approach to birth has a postoperative morbidity rate of 35.7 percent. The establishment's procedure for birth has a morbidity rate 20 times greater than a natural vaginal birth. So why is the natural way going by the wayside in America?

What is driving the surgical insanity?

Maybe Americans act on fear and trust the safety net of a surgical option? Maybe drugs and cesareans are a convenient option for mothers and doctors to schedule birth and drug down symptoms? Maybe the drug approach to birth altogether is rousing side effects inside women, forcing the inevitable cesarean section as a last false hope? Maybe there's some other power assisting the increase in drugs, surgery, and death?

Who's assisting to herd people?

It seems like the government is assisting the American medical establishment. With certain state laws prohibiting natural childbirth by midwife, it seems Americans are being herded toward the establishment's medieval birthing approach, whether they like it or not.

Alabama, Georgia, DC, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota all outlaw midwife practice. Many other states restrict midwifery, making natural birth a tough route to pursue. With midwifes being illegal, they become criminals, and the natural birth process becomes a black market. This leaves many people to believe the right and safe way is the establishment's way, even though it remains the dark and dangerous way.

Now is the time for Americans to rethink who they trust. American philosophy on health will change. Nutrition and home birth is the future. The drugging and mutilating cannot go on forever. The establishment, protected by government 'safety' standards and licenses, is a scam.

Want to make healthcare costs more affordable?

According to Frank A. Oski, MD, "$13 to $20 billion can be saved every year in health care costs by developing midwifery care, making childbirth less of a medical procedure. The cost of all the unnecessary cesareans alone done in 1991 added up to more than $1.3 billion." He says, "A shared maternity care system would lower the cost for childbirth by roughly 40 percent, or $13.143 billion."

Child birth is not a disease. It's a natural process that should not be treated with drugs and surgery. Americans shouldn't fear the natural process. They should embrace it.
