This week’s Big Mac award for utter stupidity goes to a Kilkenny woman named Aja Teehan. She’s taking a high court action to be allowed to give birth naturally at home. The HSE refuse to allow a midwife to attend her. They don’t permit home deliveries in cases where the woman has had a previous Caesarean delivery. For her own safety. She thinks she knows better. She’s a statistician. She claims she understands the odds.
What is clear is that she’s 100% stupid. She’s willing to put herself and her unborn child in danger so she can have some hippy home birth in a bath tub surrounded by wind chimes and incense while reciting Buddhist chants and eating tofu. It’s just plain daft. And a damn waste of the high court and HSE’s time. Some people are too stupid to be allowed procreate.
