62. The doctor said she induced Palin upon her arrival
This contradicts Palin's account and should be pursued. However, half the state doesn't have access to a hospital and engage with providers over the phone in late pregnancy. Many places up here don't even have running water, and see modern technology as a luxury. The ethics of telemedicine is hotly debated and a sort of wedge issue here. Bush communities may not have roads and either fly, snowmachine, 4 wheel, or hike to larger communities to get medical attention. Even pregnant women do this and they wear it like a badge of honor. Their ancestors did not need high tech doctors and midwifery is huge up here. The only other option is to go to a big city to live during late pregnancy.
