Very dangerous grounds to try and tell a woman what she can and can't do with her body for the sake of a yet unborn child.

Maybe there was something specifically about her case where they knew it would be super unsafe to do vaginal? I find it kinda odd that she was so adamant on trying vaginal when they mentioned the risks.  I mean, they did say it could result in death to the baby. Personally I would never jeopardize my baby's or my safety just to do vaginal. Just me though :/

But it's for the sake of the unborn child. Isn't that more important than her body? Lol

And also it would be so easy for her family to sue the hospital if anything happened to her or the baby while trying vaginal, in her case anyway.

I'm not cool with a woman being stripped of her autonomy just because she is pregnant.

Except that trying to do a vaginal birth isn't dangerous, in this case.  They were claiming a VBAC was dangerous, not even allowing her the opportunity the try to deliver vaginally.  That's wrong.  She had a right to decide whether or not she had a c/s.  She wasn't jeopardizing the child's life by asking for a vaginal birth.

Then why are abortions legal?

Sorry she should be able to choose.

It says right in there they told her there were risks for complications or even death. After three c sections obviously her risks would be a lot more than any other woman you has had one. So if a doc advises against it and says there are such risks, you pretty much are jeopardizing the childs life.

Besides, it's surgery and surgery is ALWAYS elective.  You have the right to decide whether or not you want to go through with it.

Umm ok well people shouldn't get pregnant then if they are going to be selfish and think only of themselves and not their child's safety lol.

That is what all anti VBAC doctors say so it's a moot point.  

The odds are fairly high that both her and baby would be perfectly fine without a c/s.
