I seen this on KKTV 11 news facebook today.  

"A 7-month pregnant woman from Colorado was on a flight that had to make a rapid descent. She says the ordeal sent her to the hospital. The plane did land safely. She wanted a full refund from the airlines, which she eventually received. Now, she also wants the airlines to pay for her medical bills not covered by insurance."


What are your thoughts?

I think she's lucky she even got a refund.

She knew she was pregnant and she still chose to fly knowing there was always the possibility the plane would have to make a rapid decent or something like that.  I don't think she should even have gotten a refund and most definitely she shouldn't have gotten her medical bills covered.

I wonder what kind of insurance she has that won't cover the cost of care

She is expecting too much. She knew the risks of getting on a plane that pregnant.

This! Does nobody take responsibility for their own decisions anymore?

We live in a society that is getting more and more entitled it seems.

That sounds rediculous. Things happen. If they had to make a rapid decent to keep everyone safe, then it was necessary. It's not their fault she's pregnant. It was her decision.
