We're joined by Wes Scroggins and Violet Stephens - Violet helps to educate us on a recent story about a hospital in Missouri that supposedly refused needed medical care (during an emergency) to a pregnant woman. Specifically, the hospital is being investigated because they refused to abort the baby.

An Article on Expectant Management
Article on "Neonatal survival after prolonged preterm premature rupture of membranes before 24 weeks"
A Very Biased Article on "Maternal morbidity after preterm premature rupture of membranes at <24 weeks"
- Here's a note from Violet on this particular article: "I want to emphasize that the conclusion was that 15% of women walked away with a live baby and no morbidity. But if you look at what was included in morbidity, they were including things like repair of lacerations and readmission to a hospital within 6 weeks. That's downright misleading, as a lot of women delivering babies have lacerations requiring a repair.
The other glaring omission was that when compared to women who chose termination - 0% walked away with no morbidity and a live baby. I guess they just thought it went without saying.
