ATTENTION MERCK MANUAL EDITORS Robert Berkow, MD and Mark H. Beers, MD... See BE ADVISED below. MDs are closing birth canals up to 30%... MDs ADMIT they are closing birth canals ON VIDEO... 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 is that 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 THE SAME GRISLY BIRTH GAFF IS (**STILL**) IN THE MERCK MANUAL! According to The Merck Manual, "When shoulder dystocia occurs, all available personnel should be summoned to the room, then the mother's thighs are hyperflexed to increase the diameter of the pelvic outlet..." http://www.merck.com/mrkshared/mmanual/section18/chapter253/253g.jsp Arrrggghhhh! Sorry to get E-motional but... Why don't MDs increase the diameter of the pelvic outlet BEFORE baby's shoulders get stuck? Why are MDs violently PUSHING on tiny spines (with Cytotec, oxytocin, PGE2) with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%? Why are MDs gruesomely PULLING on tiny spines (with hands, forceps, vacuums) with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%? Sometimes MDs pull so hard they rip spinal nerves out of tiny spinal cords! ALL spinal manipulation is gruesome with the birth canal senselessly closed up to 30%! ATTENTION MERCK MANUAL EDITORS Robert Berkow, MD and Mark H. Beers, MD... Back when I notified you of this grisly birth gaff back in 1999... See 1999 Merck Manual/Homebirth/Brain bleeds/Scoliosis http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/150 I erroneously thought MDs were rolling women off their sacra when hyperflexing the mother's thighs... BE ADVISED: Merely hyperflexing the mother's thighs (ostensibly "to increase the diameter of the pelvic outlet") KEEPS THE PELVIC OUTLET CLOSED - just like in the ACOG video! See again: ACOG birth crime video evidence http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2300 As usual, 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. MDs can't stop their criminal negligence (which sometimes escalates to criminally negligent homicide) - because stopping it would be tantamount to admitting it. Pardons in advance will allow MDs to keep making money doing their valid medical work so that they can pay the inevitable civil damages. Thanks for reading. Sincerely, Todd Dr. Gastaldo [email protected] Copied to: [email protected] and [email protected] PS1 Robert and Mark are still apparently at Merck editing The Merck Manual... http://www.merck.com/mrkshared/mmanual/front/foreword.jsp I hope their email addresses are still good. My thanks to Canadian grandma Donna Young for sending me the link which reminded me I told Merck about the grisly birth gaff over 4 years ago. PS2 Amy recently wrote: "[T]he only reason I've insulted you here is that I thought you couldn't read ;-)" Life would be SO much easier - MUCH less mentally insulting - if I couldn't read! Which reminds me... As MDs PHYSICALLY insult babies (sometimes killing them, sometimes paralyzing them) - in the process MDs are physically insulting VAGINAS. MDs are slashing vaginas en masse (euphemism "routine episiotomy") - surgically/FRAUDULENTLY inferring they are doing everything possible to OPEN birth canals - even as they CLOSE birth canals - up to 30%...
