Is the natural birth movement too narrow?

"A movement narrowly concerned with pregnancy and birth, which does not ask questions and demand answers about the lives of children and the priorities of government; a movement in which individual families rely on consumerism and educational privilege to supply their own children with good nutrition, schooling, health care, can, while perceiving itself as progressive or alternative, exist only as a minor contradiction within a society most of whose children grow up in poverty and which places its highest priority on the technology of war."

-- Adrienne Rich
