In fact, it's a "likely cause" of earlier births and lower birth weights. No shit. Seriously. They had to do a study to figure out that the more labor inductions there are the more early births (and accompanying complications and risks) there are. Ya know what else increases as the induction rate increases? Medical interventions. And medical bills.
Oh, and one more thing. As far as I've seen, all the MSM reports on this simply report the study group as pregnant women in the US. In fact, the study specifically focused on white pregnant women in the US. But, ya know, since white is the default, that seems like an irrelevant detail, doesn't it?
