I mean, what could possibly go wrong when there's an incentive for profit?
Blue Cross of California is sending physicians copies of health insurance applications filled out by new patients, along with a letter advising them that the company has a right to drop members who fail to disclose "material medical history," including "pre-existing pregnancies."

"Any condition not listed on the application that is discovered to be pre-existing should be reported to Blue Cross immediately," the letters say. The Times obtained a copy of a letter that was aimed at physicians in large medical groups.
Pre-existing pregnancies? Are they serious?

Update: AGAIN with the pregnant women. Jeebus.

The Department of Homeland Security has embarked on its latest bold move to eliminate terrorists from our midst and keep America safe, by advising law enforcement officials about a deadly new threat - pregnant women.

"The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is reminding law-enforcement officials of the increased use of female suicide bombers worldwide, and warning that women terrorists might hide explosives in devices “that mimic the look of a pregnant woman," reports NBC News.
