I just wanted to quickly link to a new article by Jennifer Block about elective cesareans: Can we please stop blaming women for c-sections? It is a thought provoking and interesting piece (and also reinforces my own perspective on the questionable nature of terming cesareans "elective" when women do NOT really have choices--i.e. with regard to VBAC, etc.).
Please do be aware that the article is on the pro-choice website RH Reality Check.
