The issue of whether women should be able to choose to give birth by caesarean section in the absence of pregnancy complications remains a controversial topic. To explore the issues and allow the public the opportunity to voice their views, academics at Bournemouth University organised a public debate on the pros and cons of allowing women free choice with regard to intervention, such as caesarean section. Two teams, each with a well-known user representative, an experienced practitioner and an academic, debated the motion; “This house believes that women should be able to choose caesarean section on demand.” This paper reports the debate and the public vote on the motion.
