      Shame on you, normalizing cesareans in this way. The way that they are becoming routine in America, like circumcisions motivated only by ignorance and hospitals wanting to make fees, is damaging. Cesareans and circumcisions are important procedures in their own way, but their thoughtless normalization is not something I can support.
