Malpractice lawsuits are one of the biggest reasons for our expensive health care. My doctor's practice pays $500,000 a year in malpractice insurance, and he's a general practitioner. ObGyn pay far more, when historically carrying a baby to term and giving birth is fraught with peril. It is unfair that we hold doctors accountable for what are "normal" medical developments. Already doctors and the medical industry have performed heroically in making sure most births go smoothly. It is lawyers who want to cash in on the successes in medicine. Curb malpractice law suits and most people will be able to pay cash for many medical procedures.
