    Has anyone heard of this? I would strongly recomend viewing the trailor for this film. It's about the capitalistic greed of hospitals & doctors, insurance companies etc when it comes to giving birth in america.

    here is the synopsis from the website:


    Pregnant in America examines the betrayal of humanity's greatest gift--birth--by the greed of U.S. corporations. Hospitals, insurance companies and other members of the healthcare industry have all pushed aside the best care of our infants and mothers to play the power game of raking in huge profits.

    His wife pregnant, first-time filmmaker Steve Buonaugurio sets out to create a film that will expose the underside of the U.S. childbirth industry and help end its neglectful exploitation of pregnancy and birth.

    And though he set out to fight the system, Steve finds that he and his wife must depend on it when a hospital struggles to save their newborn daughter's life.

    Pregnant in America is the controversial story of life's greatest miracle in the hands of a nation's most powerful interests.

    here is the link to their myspace where you can view the trailor
