The news that the AMA will be voting on whether or not to create a code to label patients as non-compliant (also referred to as “ungrateful” in the proposal) has hit the birth world hard. ICAN has issued a statement decrying this move, in particular. So yeah, last week when I advised my pregnant friend that she could decline unnecessary exams and interventions? Apparently she could be on the road toward getting a big red letter (I think “T” for “troublemaker” fits nicely) if she follows my advice and this resolution passes.
