Join the Conversation as Laura and Ryan discuss "forced cesareans." If informed consent is a pregnant patient's legal right, then how can a cesarean be forced? We welcome Farah Diaz-Tello of National Advocates for Pregnant Women to discuss the issue, as recent cases like Rinat Dray's in Staten Island, NY have brought it to the forefront of both birth justice and feminist action groups. We also hear from Ms. Dray's attorney, Michael Bast, and the founder of the NGO Human Rights in Childbirth, Hermine Hayes-Klein. We share statements from both the Staten Island hospital being sued by Ms. Dray, as well as our own Sarasota Memorial Hospital, and of course, we hear from women themselves who have felt forced into surgical birth.
