Why Am I Not Surprised?

Look who's not helping pregnant women have healthy babies, according to one of the most respected newspapers in America, the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Just before Tatiana Behrmann moved to Bryn Mawr in June, her Florida doctor diagnosed her with gestational diabetes and told her to find another obstetrician here quickly.

More than a month later, Behrmann, 29, was still searching. Due in September, she called doctor after doctor but few could see her before the end of the summer. Those who did turned her away for malpractice reasons because she was high-risk.

"It was crazy, I even went to Planned Parenthood, thinking that if anyone would see me, they would, but they don't do prenatal care," said Behrmann.
