    pregnant woman held hostage at hospital by court order

     A woman was forced to remain on bedrest for preterm labor at a Florida hospital against her will by a doctor who got a court order to hold her against her will.  Three days later her baby was born dead by c-section.

    How sad, outrageous, disgusting, horrible, horrendous ... there really are no words.  Do you know the cause of death?
