Penal populism is not what you think

I find myself vaguely disturbed in my travels around the internet, when I read stuff about pregnant women who have elective caesarians. It seems that having a baby this way is no longer something that's done in an emergency situation, or for a reason as such, but something that's done to avoid the ickiness and pain of childbirth.

I find that... odd.
