Sheep Analogy

An evangelist spoke this morning at a local church. His talk went something like this:
"A sheep is one of the stupidest animals in Creation. There was a shepherd/farm researcher doing a study on sheep. He discovered that if you put a barricade at the bottom of a single file sized ramp coming out of a semi truck that the first 30 sheep would jump the barricade and if you removed the barricade, the next thirty would jump over air because they had seen the first 30 jump."

This defines modern maternity care.
We see "A Baby Story" and we think that's normal birth.
We hear "that's protocol" and we think that we have no choices.
We think "birth is scary" and we medicate ourselves because we don't realize that we are strong enough to do this and that pain from birth is something that women can cope with if they believe in themselves.
The OB's see one induction work and think all women can be induced.
The nurses see one bad strip and think that all women should be treated one way in order to avoid another.
The lawyers get a successful case off an OB who made bad decisions and think they can make a lifestyle out of the medmal practice without ramifications to how all other women are treated.
The women out there don't realize there is something wrong with the system surrounding birth in our country. They are sheep, jumping over hurdles that don't exist, being saved from problems that are small and infrequent but believing in them nonetheless and helping their OB's to create the very situations that they will need to be saved from.

[Nodding head] I love the bit about hurdles that don't exist, that is exactly how it is.
I deleted my previous comment because Violet published it while I was still typing... :)
