A doctor forcibly delivered a baby so he could show it to a TV audience as the first Orange County baby born in 1990. I think he should, at the very least, be severely reprimanded by the American Medical Assn. ("Baby Rushed Into World for TV," Jan. 3)
This doctor administered a saddle-block anesthetic in a birthing center and then rushed the infant into another building immediately after birth. A UC Irvine medical expert was quoted as being both frightened and concerned.
The doctor says he wrapped the baby in a receiving blanket and put her in a Christmas stocking! This, it seems to me, contradicts his earlier statement that he warmly wrapped the infant.
The doctor says God had a hand in all this! Well, it's obvious to me that if God hadn't been watching over that mother and baby, the story might have ended in tragedy for all concerned.
