Southwestern Pa. hospital to stop baby deliveries



(AP) — A southwestern Pennsylvania hospital will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

OB/GYN’s have some of the highest, if not the highest, malpractice premiums.  There’s been a shortage of OB/GYN’s throughout the country because it’s so expensive to insure themselves against lawsuits.  If Congress had been serious about increasing affordable access to healthcare, they would have started with tort reform. 

Good job, Obama voters.

Or maybe that was the plan all along.  They probably figured with less baby-doctors, more people would choose to have abortions.

Yes, they really think like that.
