The rate of Cesarian Sections performed on pregnant mothers in America hovers close to 33%, a 50% increase from a decade ago. But are all these surgeries necessary? If they are not, why are they occurring at such an alarming rate? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with THERESA MORRIS, Professor of Sociology at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut. Her new book is titled CUT IT OUT: THE C-SECTION EPIDEMIC IN AMERICA. Her in depth research has revealed that many c-sections do not need to be performed but doctors and birth care professionals are pressured into performing them because of the threat of lawsuits and hospital system protocols which institute a “one best way” practice. This is an eye-opening and balanced look at how our health system works. Don’t miss this show!
