Playing Doctor, 21st Century Style

True story:

A pair of 4-year-old little girls (both born by C-section to older parents) playing doctor.

One is lying in the bed with a doll stuffed up under her shirt; the other stands next to the bed holding a (toy) saw.

Before proceeding, the standing child hands a clipboard to the one in the bed, indicating that she should sign her name; which she does, after which the “doctor” proceeds to “deliver” the “baby.”

Oy.

What is this world coming to when pre-schoolers obtain informed consent?
