Comment What we really need (Score 1) 236

is an Orion type spaceship. Not the lame Orion capsule that has been in design for the last years; what would really answer the problems of solar system exploration would be a fleet of honest to god atomic explosion powered spaceships. It would cut down travel time to a fraction of current estimates, cargo weight would become much less of a problem, hell you could even bring back those astronauts from Mars when the mission is done.

Of course you should take informed decisions. Just remember that not every Ob-Gyn is trying to gouge you. Also, that not every "alternative practitioner" has your best interests in mind. Remember also that if you're unlucky, the "dead baby card" is a real dead infant on your lap.

Ob-gyn's in the United States, but also in other parts of the world, certainly have reason to be extra careful and conservative in their decisions, as they have some of the highest rates of malpractice litigation in the medical profession.
