Medical Self-Defense in New York Times Year in Review:

I'm pleased to report that my Medical Self-Defense article was covered in this year's New York Times Magazine Year in Review section.

Art Fougner MD:
Regarding Alice's situation, assuming seven months equals 28 weeks of pregnancy or greater, survival in modern neonatal intensive care units is excellent. Given the hypothetical life-threatening illness scenario, consulting Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists would likely have little difficulty recommending administration of steroids to Mom (to accelerate Babe's lung maturation) followed by elective delivery. Respectfully, I would suggest that the resolution of Alice's situation needs no legal intervention - unless Alice refuses medical intervention. Then, of course, things get dicey. But this isn't the scenario you outlined.
