Arizona Mom Fights for Right to VBAC

Joy Szabo is pregnant with her fourth child. Her first child was born vaginally with no complications. Her second was an emergency c-section due to fetal distress. Her third was a complication free VBAC at the hospital who is now refusing to let her have a second VBAC at their hospital. They said if she showed up at their hospital in labor they would obtain a court order forcing her to have a c-section. Her answer is to spend the last few weeks of her pregnancy 350 miles from her husband and other children so that she can give birth at a hospital that will permit VBAC's. This hospital is obviously equipped to handle and emergency section because they did one for her second baby so why if she's had one successful VBAC there are they refusing to let her have another one? This story caught the attention of CNN.
