  1. ATTORNEY ANTHONY MANCINI: Please see the last paragraph of
    the postscript to this reply to Anna Lapsley...

    Anna,

    Your OB - the CULTURAL AUTHORITY who had you birth on your
    back (3 times dorsal/once semisitting)...

    That CULTURAL AUTHORITY had you close your birth canal up to
    30% FOUR TIMES.

    The fact that "only" one child was severely harmed is not
    surprising given all the variables in a given delivery.

    How could you possibly feel guilty about something a
    CULTURAL AUTHORITY did to you?

    You TRUSTED that CULTURAL AUTHORITY - your OB -
    understandably so...

    How could you possibly feel guilty? OB experts are STILL
    lying to cover-up! (Do you think Attorney Anthony Mancini
    will be able to find a "credible" OB/GYN?)

    The biomechanics are SIMPLE and AVERAGE OBs know the
    biomechanics - i.e. - YOUR OB knew s/he was closing your
    birth canal up to 30%.

    If your OB did NOT know - if s/he simply didn't learn or
    wasn't taught simple birth biomechanics from the medical
    literature - S/HE should be upset - with whatever medical
    school s/he went to!

    Do NOT feel guilty. Just spread the word. Show your OB this
    email - urge him/her to spread the word to *other* OBs.

    We must all ask ourselves...

    Although there is no GUARANTEE that allowing the birth
    canal to open maximally will prevent brachial plexus injury
    (or worse)...

    Why are we letting OBs BLAME BABIES (for being too big for
    the pelvis) as they senselessly knowingly CLOSE pelvic
    outlets up to 30%?

    Why are we letting OBs continue to close birth canals
    up to 30%?!

    It makes NO sense!

    Thanks for reading.

    Sincerely,

    Todd

    PS You said, "I'm not saying you're wrong..."

    I know that Anna...

    **Williams Obstetrics** was wrong! Obviously so!

    Your comment inspired me to add something to my post to
    Attorney Anthony Mancini below...

    I corrected Ohlsen's name to Ohlsén and added the exact
    Ohlsén cite plus a few words as follows:

    "Incidentally, the authors of Williams Obstetrics started
    telling their 'dorsal widens' bald lie in the 70s when
    Ohlsén pointed out that they were erroneously claiming that
    the pelvic diameters don't change! [Ohlsén H. Moulding of
    the pelvis during labour. Acta Radiol Diag 1973;14:417-
    434]...This bizarre obstetric behavior is REALLY bizarre
    when one realizes that it was J. Whitridge Williams, MD of
    Johns Hopkins - the ORIGINAL AUTHOR of Williams Obstetrics -
    who first called attention to the fact that the pelvic
    diameters DO change - massively in some women."

    Don't feel guilty Anna.

    You are NOT the guilty party.

    The guilty party is the SYSTEM that has an attorneys and
    juries needing a CULTURAL AUTHORITY OB/GYN before they can
    recognize an obvious lie.

    BTW, I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are
    just academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most
    powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school. That's how
    they become CULTURAL AUTHORITIES.

    Pardons in advance for MDs will allow them to keep working
    so they have money to pay the massive civil damages that are
    inevitable if Attorney Mancini ever finds his "credible"
    OB/GYN. : )

    ATTORNEY MANCINI...

    Years ago when I went before the California Medical Board
    with the simple grisly biomechanics, Richard Ikeda, MD, then-
    Medical Director of the Medical Board had told me that he
    agreed with my biomechanics but there was nothing he could
    do because closing birth canals up to 30% was the "community
    norm." (!)

    I don't think *any* OB/GYNs are "credible" if they remain
    silent as their fellow OB/GYNs knowingly close birth canals
    up to 30%.

    Anthony, I hope you don't go silent like Dr. Nath....

    See Silent Dr. Nath: BPI malpractice suits as prevention http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2357

    If no OB/GYNs will speak out - and that's been the medico-
    "legal" game for years - then you might see if a jury will
    consider the obvious lie in a certain paragraph in Williams
    Obstetrics mentioned in my initial post to you, reproduced
    below. Dorsal delivery cannot possibly both open and close
    the birth canal. Dorsal delivery CLOSES the birth canal -
    and the biomechanics are SIMPLE - self-evident - res ipsa
    loquitur - the thing itself speaks (did I spell/translate
    that right?)... If you cannot find a "credible" OB/GYN to
    demonstrate the simple biomechanics to a jury using a
    plastic model pelvis - I would be glad to do so. Actually, I
    am confident that ANY doctor of chiropractic could do so.
    Actually, I think any MOTHER could do so - after about 5
    minutes of instruction.

    My OB actually had me lie on my back to get my baby #3 out
    and she came out really quickly (posterior facing) I was
    in same position for #4 and she has rbpi my first and
    second were in a semi sitting position. I just can't
    imagine them (same ob every time) letting me do something
    that was dangerous for my baby. I was actually told that
    laying flat would help a posterior baby come out easier
    (my son took 2 hours to push in a semi sitting position)
    and my 3rd baby was also posterior and like I said came
    out really easily on my back.

    I'm not saying your wrong, I'm just saying I never heard
    it before. Makes me feel so guilty because I was on my
    back with my 4th and she is now injured. ----- Original

    Anthony,

    The closed birth canal theory is fact. It is simple
    biomechanics: Dorsal lithotomy closes the pelvic outlet
    - up to 30% according to radiographic studies. (See
    below my OBGYN-List posts from 1997, before I was
    censored.)

    Dorsal lithotomy is also known as the dorso-sacral
    position.

    See Dorland's: Preventing VS by educating OBs (also: New
    defn of chiro in Dorland's) http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2318

    Sacral indicates sacrum. If the mother is placed ON her
    sacrum, it can't move back like it's supposed to - it's
    THAT simple. Semisitting just puts the mother on her
    sacrum with MORE FORCE.

    As for credible OB/GYNs...

    The authors of Williams Obstetrics are SORT of
    credible...

    At my request, they printed "my" biomechanics but they
    left in their text (in the same paragraph!) the "dorsal
    widens" bald lie that first called my attention to
    their text.

    Incidentally, the authors of Williams Obstetrics started
    telling their "dorsal widens" bald lie in the 70s when
    Ohlsén pointed out that they were erroneously claiming
    that the pelvic diameters don't change! [Ohlsén H.
    Moulding of the pelvis during labour. Acta Radiol Diag
    1973;14:417-434]

    This bizarre obstetric behavior is REALLY bizarre when
    one realizes that it was J. Whitridge Williams, MD of
    Johns Hopkins - the ORIGINAL AUTHOR of Williams
    Obstetrics - who first called attention to the fact
    that the pelvic diameters DO change - massively in
    some women.

    "My" biomechanics as stated in Williams Obstetrics
    (without attribution) are reproduced below.

    You might try Jason Gardosi, MD of England...

    As the director of the British National Health
    Service/NHS West Midlands Perinatal Institute/WMPI/Jason
    Gardosi, MD, Director writes of the semirecumbent
    delivery position (semisitting):

    "...the weight of the mother is in part taken on the
    sacrum which is therefore pushed upwards, thus
    decreasing the antero-posterior diameter of the pelvic
    outlet..."
    http://www.wmpi.net/reviews/oe/oe_shoulder_dystocia.htm

    The funny thing is, Jason also *recommends* semisitting
    (closing the birth canal) - or used to!

    Jason and his fellow British OB pal Malcolm Griffiths
    once got me censored from an international OB/GYN
    listserv - but fortunately not before two of my posts
    were archived thereon: http://forums.obgyn.net/forums/ob-gyn-
    l/OBGYNL.9707/0128.html http://forums.obgyn.net/ob-gyn-
    l/OBGYNL.9707/0153.html

    If you are ever interested in some entertaining
    obstetric reading, check out Jason's 1989 Lancet
    "randomised controlled trial of squatting" - where
    nobody squatted!

    THE PACIORNIKS

    Of course, women do NOT have to squat to get the "extra"
    up to 30% of pelvic outlet area - but if you are
    interested in THE squatting delivery aficionados -
    contact Brazilian obstetrician Claudio Paciornik, MD and
    his father, Prof. Dr. Moyses Paciornik - also an
    obstetrician. I mentioned the Paciorniks in my two OBGYN-
    List posts, just cited. Incidentally, when The Lancet
    published Samra, Tang and Ohbrai's echo of Gardosi's
    temporary insanity that sedentary women can't squat well
    enough to deliver in the squatting position - Moyses
    sent The Lancet a report of 20,000 squatting deliveries
    - and The Lancet rejected it! So I advised Moyses to
    submit it to Birth and it was published alongside my
    description of the grisly biomechanics of semisitting
    delivery. See Paciornik and Gastaldo letters in Birth
    1992;19(4):230-31.

    BTW, Moyses pointed out that OBs are closing birth
    canals before I did; and many people did so before him.

    In 1913, Harvard obstetrician Arthur B. Emmons, MD
    wrote:

    "[M]oving backward of the tip of the sacrum...enlarges
    the available space not merely directly in proportion
    to the distance backward, but more nearly by the square
    of that distance." [Emmons, AB. A study of the
    variations in the female pelvis, based on observations
    made on 217 specimens of the American Indian squaw.
    Biometrika 1913; 9:34-47.]

    In 1993, at my request, the authors of Williams
    Obstetrics noted the grisly biomechanics of semisitting
    and dorsal delivery:

    "ncrease in the diameter of the pelvic outlet occurs
    **only** if the sacrum is allowed to rotate posteriorly,
    that is, only if the sacrum is not forced anteriorly by
    the weight of the maternal pelvis against the delivery
    table or bed." [Cunningham, MacDonald, Leveno, Gant and
    Gilstrap - at Gastaldo's request - without attribution -
    Williams Obstetrics. Appleton-Lange 1993:285, **italics
    in original - see also subsequent editions including the
    2001 edition]

    BUT...

    They left in their text - in the same paragraph (!) -
    the "dorsal widens" bald lie that first called my
    attention to their text!!
    http://home1.gte.net/gastaldo/part2ftc.html

    FACT: Dorsal (and semisitting) deliveries CLOSE the
    birth canal up to 30%!

    Most American OB/GYNs are affiliated with the American
    College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists/ACOG...

    In ACOG's Shoulder Dystocia Drill video, American MDs
    purport to tell each other how to allow birth canals to
    open maximally when shoulders get stuck - which means
    MDs know they are CLOSING birth canals most of the time.

    THE KICKER...

    ACOG's method of allowing the birth canal to open
    actually keeps it closed!

    See ACOG birth crime video evidence http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2300

    Anthony, the biomechanics are truly simple. I think what
    you really need is a BRAVE OB/GYN.

    I don't think OB/GYNs *want* to ignore the medical
    literature (and simple biomechanics) and close
    birth canals.

    I think they HAVE to close birth canals because it's such
    obvious
    criminal negligence that stopping it will be tantamount to
    admitting it.

    So what you need, Anthony, is a BRAVE OB/GYN - a man
    willing to speak up and render his whole profession
    susceptible to criminal prosecution and massive civil
    liability.

    I would be glad to testify, but I'm just the lowly
    doctor of chiropractic who caught the OB/GYN authors of
    Williams Obstetrics in their "dorsal widens" bald lie
    (see above) - and unfortunately they didn't have the
    common decency to mention my name!

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Todd

    PS Anthony, I am responding in this Open Letter in
    hopes this email will be forwarded around so that
    hopefully a suitable "credible" OB/GYN will pop out
    of the woodwork for you.

    Have you asked anyone in your "elite nationwide network
    of consultants including physicians, who are nationally
    recognized experts in such fields as obstetrics..."?
    http://www.mancinilaw.com/site/epage/13378_413.htm

    Just a thought. Again, good luck!
