Birth photo ban irks western Md. mom-to-be

*** begin quote ***

Rachel Seeger, a spokeswoman for the U.S. office of Civil Rights, said birth photography by a family member or friend doesn’t violate privacy laws, but that some hospitals prohibit the practice out of a fear of lawsuits.

*** end quote ***

The hospital cites “privacy”, but do you really think it’s that?

Maybe I’m a cynic, but I suspect the lawyers are behind this policy.

Given Big Medicine’s incestuous relationship with Big Gooferment, I assume that there is nothing “We, The Sheeple” can do about it.

Interesting that all the hospitals in the area have the same policy. Isn’t that collusion? Don’t we have anti-trust laws?

Nah, not when the “King” grants absolution.
