OPEN LETTER (archived for instant access anywhere in the world:
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2256)

Edwin C. Cadman, MD
Dean
John A. Burns School of Medicine
University of Hawai'i


Edwin,

MD-obstetricians are knowingly closing birth canals up to 30%.

SIMPLE PROOF...

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist's/ACOG's Shoulder
Dystocia video purports to tell MDs how to OPEN the birth
canal when baby's shoulders get stuck - which obviously means that
MD-obstetricians know they are closing birth canals.

WORSE: The ACOG method for opening the birth canal when baby's shoulders
get stuck (PROPER McRoberts) - actually keeps the birth canal closed!

See IMPROPER McRoberts can save tiny lives and tiny limbs...
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/1308

STILL WORSE... MD-obstetricians are slashing vaginas en masse (euphemism
"routine episiotomy") - surgically/FRAUDULENTLY inferring that everything
possible has been done to OPEN the birth canal - even as they CLOSE the
birth canal!

DELIBERATE TEARS IN VAGINAS...

Michael C. Klein, MD writes: "[E]pisiotomy is a deliberate second degree
tear." [Birth. Letter.
2002;29(1):74]

Some MDs are still claiming (fraudulently) that their episiotomies are
*preventing*
severe tears clear to the anus when in fact MDs are CAUSING severe tears
clear to the anus!

In 1990 the National Institutes of Health researched the issue and found
that deliberate tears by
MDs (episiotomies) cause fifty times MORE severe tears (tears clear to the
anus) relative to leaving the vagina alone.[Shiono et al. Obstet Gynecol
1990;75(5):765-70. In Klein et al. Online J Curr Clin Trials
(Jul1)1992, Doc. No. 10]

AS IF THAT WEREN'T BAD ENOUGH...

MDs are not only hospitalizing women DURING birth - they are using birth to
hospitalize
women AFTER birth!

"The most common diagnosis for hospitalization among all women is trauma to
perineum due to childbirth."
http://www.ahcpr.gov/data/hcup/factbk3/factbk3.htm

MDs are deliberately/senselessly traumatizing perinea - and
calling it "childbirth." (!)

This is not childbirth! This is MEDICAL birth - obvious criminal
activity...

To speed an end to the mass MD birth crime, I am in favor of pardons in
advance for MDs. MDs are just academic prime cuts forced through this
culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school.

Finally Edwin, you wrote:

"We want to
educate our students in CAM.
Not so they can practice it, but to
allow them to be familiar with what
their patients are using and to advise
them of the appropriate use of
CAM..."
http://hawaiimed.hawaii.edu/newsletter.pdf

EDWIN! The unproven MD-obstetrician CAM practice of closing birth canals is
NOT appropriate.

Please take action to stop MD-obstetricians from closing birth canals up to
30%.

Please stop pretending that conventional medicine is not CAM - "unproven."

Thanks for reading,

Sincerely,

Todd

Dr. Gastaldo



PS1 GRUESOME SPINAL MANIPULATION BY MDs...

In addition to senselessly closing birth canals, MDs are gruesomely
manipulating the tiniest spines - pushing and pulling - with birth canals
senselessly closed up to 30%.

Some babies are dying... OBs are killing an estimated six babies per DAY
with vacuum-assisted spinal
manipulation alone - with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%...

See USUAL MECHANISM (PS5) in my article, "Pregnant chiro patients: BIZARRE
chiro legislation - babies be damned..."
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2135

MD-obstetricians CAUSE cephalopelvic disproportion (and failure to
progress) - then perform c-sections BEcause of cephalopelvic disproportion
(and failure to progress)!


BEFORE MDs PERFORM C-SECTIONS...

They chemically whip the uterus to
contract VIOLENTLY - with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%

For details of this violent PUSHING spinal manipulation by MDs...

See OXYTOCIN SCREAMING...
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2242



"Off label" CYTOTEC SCREAMING...

Cytotec also makes the uterus contract violently...

Cytotec is being used "off label" - never having been tested for use during
labor...

Not long ago, Cytotec manufacturer Searle wrote a letter to OBs
"repudiating" the use of Cytotec.

FDA *banned* Cytotec use in birth...

OBs complained and "pressured" FDA to rescind the ban because
Cytotec (Misoprostol) "was in such common use."

The words in quotes are from Henci Goer's EXCELLENT article, "'Spin
Doctoring'
the Research." [Birth. (Jun)2003;30(2):124-29]

See OBs causing 'short violent labors'/Semisitting birth is NOT
physiological! (Attn: ICEA/Nurse Coleman)
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2008




MEDICAL BIRTH BAD FOR VAGINAS...

As noted above (sorry to repeat - but MDs repeat this crime thousands of
times per day)...

MD-obstetricians are SLASHING VAGINAS en masse ("routine
episiotomy") -
surgically/FRAUDULENTLY inferring they are doing everything possible to OPEN
the birth canal - even as they CLOSE the birth canal!

Michael C. Klein, MD writes: "[E]pisiotomy is a deliberate second degree
tear." [Birth. Letter.
2002;29(1):74]

Some MDs are still claiming (fraudulently) that their episiotomies are
*preventing*
severe tears clear to the anus when in fact MDs are CAUSING severe tears
clear to the anus!

In 1990 the National Institutes of Health researched the issue and found
that deliberate tears by
MDs (episiotomies) cause fifty times MORE severe tears (tears clear to the
anus) relative to leaving the vagina alone.[Shiono et al. Obstet Gynecol
1990;75(5):765-70. In Klein et al. Online J Curr Clin Trials
(Jul1)1992, Doc. No. 10]

MDs are not only hospitalizing birth - they are using birth to hospitalize
women AFTER birth!

"The most common diagnosis for hospitalization among all women is trauma to
perineum due to childbirth."
http://www.ahcpr.gov/data/hcup/factbk3/factbk3.htm

MDs are deliberately/senselessly traumatizing perinea - and
calling it "childbirth." (!)

This is not childbirth! This is MEDICAL birth - the largest insurance
fraud!



MALPRACTICE LIABILITY INSURERS...

THE ST. PAUL FIRE AND MARINE...

"1974...The St. Paul introduces the 'claims-made' policy for medical
liability insurance."
http://www.stpaul.com/wwwcorporate/c...us/history.asp

MALPRACTICE LIABILITY INSURANCE FRAUD?

Back in 1996, I noted that Attorney/physician Harvey Wachsman [Lethal
Medicine
NY: Henry Holt 1993] reported that obstetricians were creating a phony
malpractice liability insurance crisis that was "believed at the highest
level
of government."

In his 1993 book, Wachsman offered some staggering figures to show that
malpractice liability
insurers are making an obscene killing writing insurance for
obstetricians.

Obstetricians appear to be getting something quite valuable in return -
the ability to tell homebirth midwives that their malpractice liability
insurance companies simply won't let them support homebirth....

In effect then, the malpractice liability insurers thus insure that all
maternity care business is routed to obstetricians.

Obstetricians then have PLENTY of money for their malpractice liability
insurance premiums AND a seemingly legitimate gripe at-the-ready for
when they are asked why they are refusing to back-up homebirth midwives.

ANTHEM "TOOK SERIOUSLY THE MALPRACTICE CONCERNS RAISED BY PHYSICIANS"

Friday, July 11, 2003
Anthem, Ob/Gyns agree on reimbursement terms through '05
For consumers, the contracts help resolve growing fears that obstetricians
in Cincinnati would stop delivering babies over their concerns about
malpractice insurance...Anthem officials took action because they took
seriously the malpractice
concerns raised by physicians.
By Tim Bonfield
The Cincinnati Enquirer
http://www.enquirer.com/editions/200...hemdocs11.html

Copied to Tim Bonfield

Apparently, the US General Accounting Office/GAO agrees with Dr. Wachsman
that the malpractice liability insurance crisis is way overblown...

ACOG birth-canal-closers are whining about GAO's report...

"In essence, the recent GAO report tells the physicians who care for women
and newborns that any liability insurance crisis is either imagined or, at
best, is selectively affecting doctors but miraculously sparing their
patients."
http://www.acog.org/from_home/public...nr09-25-03.cfm

ACOG seems to have a legitimate beef with GAO...

"In measuring obstetrical care, the report focuses on newborn deliveries,
and yet assesses access by evaluating Medicare utilization data, a
completely inappropriate measurement of obstetric services since Medicare
covers only 6,000 of the 4 million US deliveries a year."
http://www.acog.org/from_home/public...nr09-25-03.cfm

I didn't know MEDICARE is paying for 6,000 deliveries per year!

A NOTE ABOUT MEDICA I notified HCFA Analyst Dorothy Honemann in 1997
about the MD birth crime. She did nothing.

More recently, Diana Motsiopoulos, the designated Federal Official for Pres.
George W. Bush's Medicare/Medicaid/CMS Practicing Physician Advisory
Committee (PPAC) asked that I stop emailing her about the crime...

See Feds (Motsiopoulos/CMS/PPAC/Pres Bush) to help babies?
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2178

I'll copy this to Motsiopoulos and PPAC/Medicare - via Keri Boston


Medicare Practicing Physician Advisory Committee - please advise Medicare to
demand that MDs stop closing birth canals in those 6,000 deliveries per
year. Advise Medicaid to do the same - even if you have no Medicaid
advisory authority.



Back to ST. PAUL FIRE AND MARINE...

"1974...The St. Paul introduces the 'claims-made' policy for medical
liability insurance."
http://www.stpaul.com/wwwcorporate/c...us/history.asp

ST. PAUL! MDs are senselessly closing birth canals thereby CREATING
malpractice liability (not to mention paralyzed arms, etc.)

ST. PAUL FIRE AND MARINE SHOULD TAKE ACTION!

ST. PAUL EMPLOYEES MIGHT EVEN **VOLUNTEER** TO STOP THE MD CRIME!

"The St. Paul has a long tradition of corporate
citizenship...[C]ountless volunteer hours [are] contributed by employees..."
http://www.stpaul.com/wwwcorporate/c...es/welcome.asp

I'll cc St. Paul employee (Chairman/CEO Jay S. Fishman) via:

A special thanks BTW must go to St. Paul fraud employee Steve Bodge,

thank him for me. Steve's "response" stimulated me to read about St.

insurance. Steve refocused my attention on the **malpractice liability**
aspect of the massive MD birth fraud...



THE INSURANCE BUREAU OF CANADA/IBC...

FORTUNATELY, the Insurance Bureau of Canada/IBC (220 Canadian
general/property and casualty insurers) -
is interested in PREVENTION of insurance fraud - "REGARDLESS OF WHO IS
PROVIDING PAYMENT," as in,

"Launch a permanent national effort on injury prevention (p. 3)...Improv[e]
the flow of information to the public about health
system performance and costs...There is...sound evidence of the need for the
major funders of health care to work together to develop specific mechanisms
to strengthen individual accountability for the proper use of health system
resources, regardless of who is providing payment. (p. 9)"
--RESTORING CONFIDENCE (The Insurance Bureau of Canada/IBC)^^^

IBC says "major funders of health care" need to work together...

IBC *is* a "major funder of healthcare" - IBC could take the lead!

^^^The article just quoted - RESTORING CONFIDENCE - is the Insurance
Bureau of Canada's Sept.
2001 submission to the The Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada
and The Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology
http://www.ibc.ca/pdffiles/publicati...e-sept2001.pdf

IBC should at least TALK to OTHER "major funders of health care" - for
example the guys at Anthem...

IBC should demand that Anthem's Tom and Larry stop paying MDs who close
birth canals - on both sides of the border...

IBC says:

"Thirty million Canadians are the true owners of our health care system. As
individual users, they need to have the information and the knowledge to
make informed choices about their health care." (p. 22)
--RESTORING CONFIDENCE (The Insurance Bureau of Canada/IBC)

IBC's sentiments are my sentiments - EXACTLY!

Similarly, Americans are the true owners of *their* health care system -
with for-profit CEO's SUPPOSEDLY interested in quality of health care (see
ACA/McAndrews quote below)...

I'll cc IBC's Robert Cooke, Chairman and Stan Griffin President and C.E.O.,

companies. We work to improve the environment in which our members operate

THE NATIONAL HEALTH CARE ANTI-FRAUD ASSOCIATION

WILL NHCAA HELP?

WILL AHFI's HELP?

On August 9, 2002, Bill Mahon, National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association
(NHCAA)
Executive Director, formally announced the membership role for the inaugural
group of Accredited Health Care Fraud Investigators (AHFI's).

A PHYSICIAN, A HOSPITAL - "the most common type of health fraud"...

ANTHEM'S MARY LOU SULLIVAN, AHFI SAYS...

"Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kentucky also provides a hotline
number
for members, according to Mary Lou Sullivan, the company's senior manager of
special investigations...Sullivan said the most common type of health care
fraud is billing for
services not rendered...'That could be a physician, a pharmacy, a hospital -
any type of health-care
provider,' she said."

but always BILLING - fraudulently.

INSURERS - General *and* Health insurers: Please help benefit the TINIEST
insurance consumers!

Tell mothers before birth...

PREGNANT WOMEN: You can allow your birth canal to OPEN the "extra" up to
30% - just roll onto your side - or use kneeling or hands-and-knees or stand
or squat - ANYTHING but semisitting or dorsal.

WARN mothers:

1. Most MD-obstetricians close the birth canal up to 30%^^^ even as they
acknowledge that closing the birth canal FAR LESS can kill.

2. Some MD-obstetricians will let you "try" "alternative" delivery positions
BUT they will move you back to dorsal or semisitting (close your birth canal
up to 30%!) for the actual delivery!

^^^NOTE: If the pubic arch is narrow, semisitting and dorsal likely close
the birth canal MORE than 30% in some women.

According to Williams
Obstetrics [2001]:

"...With increasing narrowing
of the pubic arch, the occiput cannot emerge directly beneath the symphysis
pubis but is forced increasingly farther down...the ischiopubic rami. In
extreme cases, the head must rotate around a line joining the ischial
tuberosities [!] (p. 438)..."

PROOF that MDs know they are closing birth canals:

At my request, the authors of Williams Obstetrics *published*
"my" biomechanics - but they left in their text the "dorsal widens" bald lie
that first called my attention to their text.

Here are the biomechanics that were added at my request to Williams
Obstetrics:

"It should be noted...that the increase in the diameter of the
pelvic outlet occurs *only* if the sacrum is allowed to rotate
posteriorly..."
[1993:285, *italics* in original]

In a case of OBVIOUS NEGLIGENCE, the authors of Williams Obstetrics left in
their text
(in the same paragraph!) the "dorsal widens" bald lie that first called my
attention to their text.

For a discussion of OTHER obvious obstetric
negligence - and how the 30% figure was radiographically derived - see
http://home1.gte.net/gastaldo/part2ftc.html. My thanks to Prof. Dr. Moyses
Paciornik, MD, Curitiba, Brazil, for calling my attention to this
chiropractic emergency. See the Paciornik and Gastaldo letters in Birth
[1992;19:230]

FURTHER proof that MDs know they are closing birth canals (already noted)...

ACOG's shoulder dystocia video purports to show
MDs how to OPEN the birth canal maximally when the shoulders get stuck -
which of course is an indirect admission that MDs are indeed routinely
CLOSING birth canals...

Unfortunately, the ACOG method for opening the birth canal (PROPER
McRoberts) actually keeps it closed...

See IMPROPER McRoberts can save tiny lives and tiny limbs...
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/1308

(ACOG = Amercian College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists - the obstetric
trade union to which most MD-obstetricians belong.)


IT'S NOT JUST ACOG...

CANADA'S obstetricians are also closing birth canals...

I warned the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC)
that semisitting closes the birth canal -
but SOGC still apparently approves the following grisly bald lie:

"The traditional lithotomy position commonly used
in obstetric units can certainly be modified to obtain a
semi-sitting posture and hence achieve the benefit
derived from the upright position..."
SOGC CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES
POLICY STATEMENT No. 71, December 1998:53
http://www.sogc.org/SOGCnet/sogc_doc...lthybegeng.pdf

SOGC *also* still says (same document - p. 54): "[T]he traditional lithotomy
position...should...be reserved for cases of operative delivery
[vacuum/forceps]."

Traditional lithotomy - like semi-sitting/semi-recumbency -
CLOSES THE BIRTH CANAL!

One does NOT pull on a baby's skull with the birth canal senselessly closed!


PARDONS FOR MDs...

As always, I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are just
academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most powerful mental
meatgrinder - medical school.


ACOG OF VIRGINIA'S WILLETT L. LEHEW, MD...

The American Chiropractic Association/ACA lawsuit (against Trigon cum
Glasscock's Anthem, currently on appeal) alleges that...

As part of Trigon cum Anthem's Managed Care Advisory Panel/MCAP Willett L.
LeHew and other Trigon cum Anthem MD advisors "collusively assembled and
distributed scientifically distorted 'back pain guidelines' to more than 90%
of the medical physicians in Virginia."
http://www.chiroweb.com/trigon/trigon.pdf

The American Chiropractic Association/ACA ALSO alleges that (as part of
Trigon cum Anthem's Managed Care Advisory Panel/MCAP) LeHew distorted
AHCPR's spinal manipulation guidelines to stop MDs from referring o DCs for
the type of spinal manipulation specifically called for in the AHCPR
guidelines.

Of all the Panel members,the OBSTETRIC member should have spoken out against
the Panel's distortion of the AHCPR guidelines: Pregnant women - who often
suffer low back pain - are *not supposed to take* the Non-Steroidal
Anti-Inflammatory Drugs/NSAIDS recommended by AHCPR - unless absolutely
necessary!

Pregnant women are advised to AVOID medication for fear of causing harm to
their fetuses.

Fortunately, a Danish study of over 50,000 women concluded that NSAID usage
had no impact on the odds for birth defects, low birth weight babies, or
preterm births...

UNFORTUNATELY the same study found that taking NSAIDs increased the risk of
having a miscarriage.
http://www.pedsforparents.com/Articles/articles16.html (citing British
Medical Journal, 2000/12Volume 19, Number 9)

ACA Attorney George McAndrews was surprised about something that also
surprises me...

McAndrews writes:

"Surprisingly, Trigon's Chief Medical Doctor [William Bracciodieta, M.D.]
testified that the quality of
health care given was of no concern to Trigon:...Q. Does Trigon in any way
try to evaluate the effects of its insurance coverages or lack of coverages
on the healthcare provided to those that are insured by Trigon
policies?...A. No. Again, that's not the business that we're in..."
--Attorney George P. McAndrews
http://www.amerchiro.org/pdf/trigon_...ants_brief.pdf

QUESTION: Which is it? Trigon-cum-Anthem CEOs? - or MDs? - or BOTH (!) -
who think an insurance company should not "in any way try to evaluate the
effects of its insurance coverages..." (?)

Rosanne,

You say that as CAM therapies "are proven to be safe and effective, they
become adopted into conventional health care..."
http://hawaiimed.hawaii.edu/newsletter.pdf

WRONG!

The ACA v. Trigon (now Anthem) lawsuit discussed above is about a CAM
therapy - chiropractic style spinal manipulation - found to be safe and
effective - being DELETED by "conventional health care" practitioners/MDs...

An insurance company team "conventional health care" practitioners/MDs
REWROTE the federally-sponsored guideline and DELETED chiropractic-style
manipulation!

The MD-obstetrician (Willett L. LeHew, MD) on that insurance company team
should have known better! Pregnant women are supposed to AVOID NSAIDS!
Chiropractic style manipulation was the only kind of manipulation the
federally-sponsored guideline found safe and effective - yet "conventional
health care" practitioners/MDs DELETED it!!

It gets worse Rosanne! Back surgeons were discovered by that same
federally-sponsored panel to be doing UNNECESSARY SURGERIES.

The back surgeons lobbied Congress to get rid of the AGENCY that sponsored
such panels!

AHCPR died and toothless AHRQ was born!

See Sen. Frist, infant penis care, dead babies - and AHRQ 'in-hospital
safety events'
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2019

Rosanne, you say chiropractors use manipulative therapy as "an integral
treatment tool," as in,

"Chiropractic ("ki-roh-PRAC-tic")...an
alternative medical system that focuses on
the relationship between bodily structure
(primarily that of the spine) and function, and
how that relationship affects the preservation
and restoration of health. Chiropractors use
manipulative therapy as an integral
treatment tool."
http://hawaiimed.hawaii.edu/newsletter.pdf

FACT: Chiropractors are MINORITY spinal manipulators!

**MD-obsetricians** are the most prolific users of manipulative therapy as
an integral treatment tool!

MD-obstetricians: If you must push or pull on tiny spines - and sometimes
you must - get women off their backs/butts - off their sacra!

Rosanne, one of the most important parts of chiropractic is NON-SPINAL -
knowing when NOT to manipulate the spine...

MD-obstetricians have not yet learned this important chiropractic lesson.

Nor have nurses (CNMwives) learned this important chiropractic lesson. Even
after I warned Yale CNMwifery Prof. Helen Varney by telephone and fax years
ago, she *still* promotes closure of the birth canal up to 30%!!

NURSE MIDWIVES...

CNMwife Helen FRAUDULENTLY^^^ speaks for all midwives in her 2004 edition:

"The usual positions in a hospital delivery room are lithotomy or dorsal.
Midwives believe that in neither of these positions does the woman have to
be flat on her back; rather, they encourage a semisitting, or 'back up' and
'legs down,' modification of these positions." (!)
[Varney H. Varney's Midwifery. Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett. 4th ed.
2004:839]

CNMwife Helen's Fig. 28-12 shows a CNMwife "helping" a woman into
semisitting!

Also on p. 839: "In the event of...shoulder dystocia...the woman should be
in a lithotomy position..."

ROSANNE: Your fellow NURSES (CNMwives) are promoting closure of the birth
canal!

Please consider this email is a NON-SPINAL chiropractic adjustment.
Paraphrasing your own definition of chiropractic...by focusing on the
relationship between bodily structure and function and how that relationship
affects health (your definition of chiropractic) - you can EASILY see that
MD-obstetricians should NOT use manipulative therapy as an integral
treatment tool - at least not with the birth canal senselessly closed up to
30%...

Chiropractic is FAR more than spinal manipulation...it includes non-spinal
adjustment of EMOTIONAL SUBLUXATIONS (see IF I'VE EMBARRASSED ANYONE and see
FINALLY ROSANNE, below.)

^^^Again, CNMwife Helen FRAUDULENTLY speaks for all midwives in her 2004
edition. CNMwives are primarily HOSPITAL-based. My experience has been
that most HOMEBIRTH midwives are aware that semisitting closes the birth
canal.


IF I'VE EMBARRASSED ANYONE...

Sorry if I've embarrassed any MDs or DCs or RNs or APRN-Rxs or insurance
executives, but crime is crime - and crime against babies is perhaps the
worst crime.

SILENCE about crime is often due to...

Fear of embarrassment - fear of loss of cultural authority - fear of loss of
income - fear of IMPRISONMENT...

These fears are powerful EMOTIONAL SUBLUXATIONS that perpetuate SILENCE and
thereby perpetuate the bizarre MD birth practice discussed above.

These emotional subluxations cost babies their very lives due to GRUESOME
mass spinal manipulation by MDs - which likely causes more vertebral
subluxations than DCs will ever be able to adjust by hand.

WHO-affiliated Christopher Kent, DC suggested that
emotional subluxations cause VERTEBRAL subluxations:

"[A]ddressing vertebral subluxations, and the physical, biochemical, and
emotional [subluxations] that cause [vertebral subluxations]...is a lifelong
process -- a way of
life --...an integral component of a global strategy for human empowerment."
http://mercola.com/2003/nov/12/beyond_bad_backs.htm

Emotional subluxations are causing MDs to WRENCH baby spines - it is quite
likely that if vertebral subluxations exist and cause disease - they are
being caused by MD-obstetricians.

Hopefully the WHO-affiliated Dr. Kent will ask Terry Rondberg's World
Chiropractic Alliance/WCA to stop failing to mention PREVENTION of vertebral
subluxations via non-spinal (educational) chiropractic adjusting.

I SAY AGAIN...

In addition to senselessly closing birth canals, MDs are gruesomely
manipulating the tiniest spines - pushing and pulling - with birth canals
senselessly closed up to 30%.

Some babies are dying... OBs are killing an estimated six babies per DAY
with vacuum-assisted spinal
manipulation alone - with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%...

See USUAL MECHANISM (PS5) in my article, "Pregnant chiro patients: BIZARRE
chiro legislation - babies be damned..."
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2135


WCA's Terry Rondberg never responded to the just cited post...

(NOTE: WCA's Dr. Kent, quoted above, referred to physical, biomechanical and
emotional "distress." I substituted the term "subluxations" in accord with
chiropractic Founder Dr. DD Palmer's focus on adjusting non-spinal
(educational) subluxations.)


FINALLY ROSANNE... Regarding the CHIROPRACTIC part of the CAM course that
you "lead" at JABSOM, I encourage you to look into the Rule 302 TAIN et al.
lawsuit filed by Attorney David Prescott in California...

See Rule 302, Birth and Trigon/Anthem (Glasscock) - and ACOG's Willett

canals and gruesomely manipulating most babies' spines - OR he never got my
email. (I will assume the last. If Steve's email address is no longer
good/was never good - I received no bounce - hopefully someone at the John
A. Burns School of Medicine knows him and will forward this to him...)

^^^"My" biomechanics... As noted above, the authors of Williams Obstetrics
PUBLISHED "my"biomechanics at my request - BUT - they left in their text -
in the same paragraph (!) - the "dorsal widens" bald lie that first called
my attention to their text!

Steve's Emergency Physician speciality was mentioned by Helen Altonn
) on Feb. 9, 2003:

"Dr. Stephen Graner, past president of the Hawaii Chapter, American College
of Emergency Physicians, in a letter to legislators said the center is
'indispensable' to his emergency practice. 'Imagine my surprise to find the
center is not supported by public funding,' he said, urging legislators to
pass legislation 'placing responsibility for funding the Hawaii Poison
Center where it belongs: With us, the citizens of Hawaii.'"

Steve, assuming this email reaches you...

BE ADVISED: Emergency Physicians are teaching themselves to close birth
canals...

Timothy C. Stallard, MD, FACEP wrote (w/ Burns):

"In shoulder dystocia, generous episiotomy, drainage of the bladder,
McRobert's
maneuver, and suprapubic pressure may all help disengage the anterior
shoulder...The supine position can lead to aortocaval compression."
-- Stallard and Burns [Emerg Med Clin North Am. 2003 Aug;21(3):679-93.
PubMed
abstract]

ER physicians should start mentioning that the supine position closes the
birth canal - up to 30% - and McRoberts maneuver as illustrated on the ACOG
video - CLOSES the birth canal with more force. (ACOG's McRobert's maneuver
does however allow the woman to push harder - which is good - but ATTENTION
MDs - do NOT have women push with their birth canals senselessly closed up
to 30%! If you must push (oxytocin) or pull (hands/forceps/vacuums) - and
sometimes you must - FIRST get women off their butts/backs - off their
sacra...


CHIROPRACTORS COMPETE WITH OBSTETRICIANS...

The American Chiropractic Association/ACA recently stated in the US Court of
Appeals for the Fourth Circuit that,
"[C]hiropractors compete with...obstetricians..." (p. 23-24)
ACA v. Trigon (now Anthem)
Reply Brief of Appellants, Filed Oct. 9, 2003
Record No. 03-1675

BUT DCs ARE COMPETING WITH MD *CRIME* - IT'S NOT COMPETITION!

MD-obstetricians are senselessly closing birth canals then gruesomely
manipulating most babies' spines thereby killing and paralyzing some babies
and likely causing more vertebral subluxations than DCs will ever be able to
adjust by hand.

(Perish the thought - but can DCs be remaining silent because
MD-obstetricians are, in effect, creating business for them?)

LESSER MD CRIME: MD-obstetricians are pushing NSAIDS on pregnant women with
low back pain - fraudulently failing to offer them chiropractic style spinal
manipulation. (ACOG's Willett LeHew, MD helped Trigon DELETE mention of
chiropractic style spinal manipulation from federally (AHCPR)-sponsored
guidelines! See above.)

This latter lesser crime is the subject of the ACA v. Trigon (now Anthem)
lawsuit cited above; though oddly I do not see any mention in the ACA/Trigon
(now Anthem) brief of the fact that most pregnant women should AVOID NSAIDS
when they experience back pain....

See Is Trigon (Anthem) pushing NSAIDS in pregnancy?

I AM UNLICENSED BY CHOICE...

I am unlicensed by choice in large part because a man calling himself
Michael Schroeder, attorney for the Calif. Bd. of Chiro. Examiners, told me
that it was outside the Calif. scope of chiropractic practice to tell
pregnant women that MD-obstetricians are closing birth canals...

COINCIDENTALLY, a Michael Schroeder who had served as attorney for the
Calif. Bd. of Chiro. Examiners later sued me for libel^^^ as I discussed his
Rule 302 and the fact that he in effect helped 10 MD-obstetricians
judicially rubberstamp his Rule 302...

^^^I spent $2500 dollars trying to get the trial moved to Oregon where I
could defend myself - but I lost on jurisdiction. The merits of the case
were never argued. The judge lined through Schroeder's one million dollar
claim and awarded him a $25,000 dollar default judgement.

Fortunately, the reportedly UNLAWFUL Calif. scope of practice regulation,
Rule 302, is now being challenged in court by TAIN et al.

See again: Rule 302, Birth and Trigon/Anthem (Glasscock) - and ACOG's
Willett LeHew, MD
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2252

Michael Schroeder, mentioned above was the Calif. Chiro. Association/CCA
legal counsel who wrote Rule 302 before jumping to the Calif. Chiro Bd where
he "defended" his Rule 302 from the 10 MD-obstetricians who "attacked" it.
The MD-obstetricians likely brought their Rule 302 lawsuit - not to get rid
of Rule 302 - but more likely to get it judicially rubberstamped. Like DCs
in various other states, Calif. DCs attended thousands of births. Rule 302
suddenly prohibited Calif. DCs from severing umbilical cords! MDs can close
birth canals, gruesomely manipulate babies' spines, and sometimes sever
SPINAL NERVES - and DCs can't sever umbilical cords?! SOMETHING ain't
right!

Why Rule 302? As it was being formulated, the last chiropractic
obstetrician in California was being harassed. DCs had always attended
HOMEBIRTHS. The British government later completed an inquiry and found NO
basis for the medical claim that "homebirth is child abuse." I suspect that
birth-canal-closing MD-obstetricians didn't want Calif. DCs *thinking* about
getting back into attending homebirths - let alone thinking about the
massive MD spinal manipulation crime. (Am I the first DC to protest the
crime?)

I suspect Attorney Schroeder was working for MEDICINE - not chiropractic in
the Rule 302 matter. I am *quite* pleased to see TAIN et al. suing to get
the chiropractic profession out from under Rule 302. Schroeder has his
default judgement against me now - WHY isn't this vaunted "chiropractic"
attorney working to stop MD-obstetricians from closing birth canals and
gruesomely manipulating most babies' spines at birth? Why aren't Calif.
DCs telling Schroeder that I'm right about the biomechanics and urging him
to get busy filing a lawsuit to stop the gruesome spinal manipulation by
MDs? (See "Perish the thought" above.)

Since children sometimes die or get paralyzed when MDs senselessly close
birth canals up to 30%...

As noted above, I am unlicensed by choice in large part because a man
calling himself Michael Schroeder, attorney for the Calif. Bd. of Chiro.
Examiners, told me that it was outside the Calif. scope of chiropractic
practice to tell pregnant women that MD-obstetricians are closing birth
canals...

QUESTION FOR MICHAEL SCHROEDER (and anyone else reading - esp. chiros)...

With substantially MD-funded law enforcement officers (state attorney
generals) dragging their feet - ALLOWING MDs to commit obvious child
abuse/knowingly close birth canal (see PROOF above)...

Is it outside the scope of practice in any state for DCs to file MANDATORY
SUSPECTED CHILD ABUSE REPORTS regarding this bizarre abusive (sometimes
fatal) MD-obstetrician behavior?

Is it outside the scope of practice in any state for DCs to encourage other
DCs to file and to encourage them to KEEP filing until the gruesome spinal
manipulation by MDs stops?

DCs: I have filed - many times. I have emailed Oregon Atty Gen'l Hardy
Meyers - TO NO AVAIL... Let's ALL start filing!

PARDONS FOR MDS: To speed an end to the obvious massive MD spinal
manipulation crime against babies, I personally am in favor of pardons in
advance for MDs. MDs are just academic prime cuts forced through this
culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school.

EDWIN C. CADMAN, MD...

With MD-funded law enforcement officers (state attorney generals) dragging
their feet (in Calif. and Oregon at least), I suggest you contact Hawai'i
Attorney General Mark J. Bennett and ask that he make stopping MDs from
closing birth canals a topic for immediate action. PUBLISH the topic of the
Hawai'i Attorney General stopping MDs from closing birth canals in your
newsletter until MDs STOP closing birth canals.

I'll put the Hawai'i Attorney General on the subject line with you...

HAWAI'I ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK J. BENNETT...

MASS CHILD ABUSE...

MD-obstetricians are knowingly closing birth canals up to 30%.

SIMPLE PROOF...

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist's/ACOG's Shoulder
Dystocia video purports to tell MDs how to OPEN the birth
canal when baby's shoulders get stuck - which obviously means that
MD-obstetricians know they are closing birth canals.

WORSE: The ACOG method for opening the birth canal when baby's shoulders
get stuck (PROPER McRoberts) - actually keeps the birth canal closed!

See IMPROPER McRoberts can save tiny lives and tiny limbs...
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/1308

In addition to senselessly closing birth canals, MDs are gruesomely
manipulating the tiniest spines - pushing and pulling - with birth canals
senselessly closed up to 30%.

Some babies are dying... OBs are killing an estimated six babies per DAY
with vacuum-assisted spinal
manipulation alone - with birth canals senselessly closed up to 30%...

See USUAL MECHANISM (PS5) in my article, "Pregnant chiro patients: BIZARRE
chiro legislation - babies be damned..."
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2135

For other obvious MD-obstetrician crimes...

See Sen. Frist, infant penis care, dead babies - and AHRQ 'in-hospital
safety events'
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2019

As noted above, to speed an end to the massive obvious obstetric crimes, I
am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are just academic prime cuts
forced through this culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical
school.

Thanks for reading,

Sincerely,

Todd

Dr. Gastaldo
