161. On the phone with her FP?
Sorry, no dice. Any real doctor worth his or her salt would've told her to get her ass to the closest good hospital with a NICU. Instead, the doctor herself admitted in the news article that Sarah never specifically asked for medical permission and that the doctor most likely wouldn't have given it (which is doctor-speak for CYA).

Palin and the baby could have died. It's that simple. Her doctor, an FP (not a high-risk pregnancy specialist, the doctor she should've had), was not with her but instead trying to figure it out across the miles and over the phone. Standard of care was not met, and if something had happened to Palin or the baby, it would've been malpractice and an instant lawsuit.
