It never ceases to amaze me just how immoral, cruel, idiotic and self-assured of their own stupidity people can be. A recent survey from the U.K. only further proves just how fundamentally stupid some people are, and that a medical degree doesn’t mean jack.
A poll of nearly 1,000 women was recently conducted by a charity called “Pregnant Then Screwed” (hell of a name for a charity) which revealed that one in five women, or 20%, who were in labor were ordered to wear a mask by a medical “professional” attending them at the births, including 10% of women who had natural births and 50% who had caesarian section.
This is cruel, idiotic and unscientific for a number of reasons, ranging from common sense reasons to scientific ones.
First of all, one of the main things that a woman is supposed to do while giving birth is breathe. Granted, we are always supposed to do this, but doctors give a particular emphasis on breathing patterns during labor, such as how deep their breaths are supposed to be, how often to do so, etc. Being able to breathe well during labor is imperative. And guess what happens when a woman who is giving birth is forced to wear a mask?
Now, neither the survey nor the subsequent article on BBC News mentioned anything about women passing out, away, or anything horrible like that, which is frankly miraculous, in my opinion. It very well could have happened to any of the women (and might have, as again, there is no mention of it, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t have happened or that it didn’t) and that would have made the situation a whole lot worse for no reason apart from Leftist fearmongering regarding the virus and the wearing of masks, as though masks are borderline the solution to the virus.
One woman said she was very panicked and thought she might throw up in her mask, and another pointed out how she was “gasping for air”: “Someone put the mask on me. I said ‘you can’t be serious,’ and she replied ‘yes,’ and then I remember having a contraction. My body was already in a state of distress, and I tried to remove the mask at one point, but I was told I had to put it back on.” This woman ended up having to have emergency C-Section and was told she had to continue wearing the mask while having the operation.
Now, during a C-section, the mother is not the one exercising any energy or having to do much at all, so one could realistically argue that telling the mother to wear a mask (though still dumb and unnecessary) might be acceptable. During an emergency C-section, the mother is put to sleep using anesthesia, so I could hardly see the point of putting a mask on them here. But during live birth, it makes ZERO sense to have them wearing a mask.
But aside from the common sense arguments for not forcing BIRTHING WOMEN to wear masks, there is also the recommendation laid out in a briefing document made by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG), as well as NHS recommendation, which stated that women who are giving birth are exempt from wearing a facemask. Every hospital in the country ought to be following such recommendations, and yet, 20% of women giving birth are told or forced to wear a mask.
It is utterly asinine, cruel, unscientific and, frankly, criminal, especially if a woman ends up dying as a result. It is utterly unnecessary to force a woman giving birth to wear a mask, and were she to suffer physically, mentally or emotionally, or if she ends up dying as a result, the hospital ought to be sued for such damages.
Matter of fact, the very woman I talked about who required emergency C-Section is said to not be able “to wear any kind of facial covering since giving birth, because it triggers the memory of ‘struggling to breathe’ which she experienced during her labour,” according to BBC News.
While I am generally against the wearing of masks for the healthy, as it is utterly unnecessary and unprecedented in the history of pandemics, you’d think it would be rather counter-productive to cause such psychological harm to a woman to the point where she gets something akin to (or actual) PTSD when trying to put a covering on her face when these people WANT others to wear masks and generally obey the irrational and immoral mask mandates. If she indeed is unable to wear any face coverings, that presents a problem to her in a country which, ashamedly, seems rather content with living out Orwell’s 1984 in the very setting of the book and which mandates mask-wearing for just about all activities.
If she is psychologically incapable of wearing a mask in a place where she is borderline forced to, why should the hospital where she suffered such psychological damage be exempt from liability?
But that’s a matter for the woman herself to deal with. Nevertheless, we see the sort of damage this lunacy and fearmongering has caused. People are legitimately afraid of a virus which has a 99.9% survivability rate for most people to the point where causing psychological harm to others is acceptable, and where potentially causing physical harm to women in labor is also acceptable.
Granted, it’s not every woman who is forced to wear a mask during labor, but the fact that any woman is forced to do so is downright criminal. That it’s this “rare” showcases how erroneous and unfair an act it is.
Those hospitals are running the risk of cutting off the extremely necessary oxygen supply of women giving birth. What kind of doctor, other than Doctor Kevorkian, would put his or her patients in harm’s way like this? It is absolute madness which has the potential to harm a plethora of people, completely unnecessarily.
May God help the women who were forced to wear masks and guide our societies to be more rational about handling the virus.
