That a woman could be convinced by the medical community that "failure to progress" is a medical emergency, and requires a c-section?
I would have had 3 c-sections if this were true... the SHORTEST labor I had was 36 hours. All of my babies were happy, healthy, and pink. it is NORMAL for their HR to drop during a contraction.

We do have a lot more C-sec in this country then others, but I'm not a risk taker, if there is a chance of a problem I want to take the safest route, whether that's a vaginal delivery or a C-sec, and I don't know when it's a real concern and just the doctors worried about being liable.
