I strongly disagree that an insurance company should not pay to have this surgery reversed because if you are not told what the complications will be. It's like you totally trust your Dr to tell you all these things in order for you to make the right choices but if you are not told, how would you make the right choice.If you go in to heart surgery you are told the complications and you have a choice to possibly live longer or shorten your life, YOU HAVE THE CHOICE. In this case, we are not giving the choice because we are NOT told of the complications before hand.I would agree with you if you where told and you still choice to have the operation.perfect example: You decide to go on vacation, you save for this wonderful vacation, you are so excided, you have pictures, you are promised a wonderful stay. You get there and it's not what you where told.Why where you not told that the hotel in the picture was a picture of the what the hotel would be like in two years? why where you not told that the pool would not be open do to contruction? why where you not told that there would be no room service due to understaffing?.Then you find out that your travel agent knew all these thing and did not let you.They did not tell you because they would lose money. You trusted them and they ruened your whole vacation because they wanted your money.Money that you saved for a long time. WOULDN'T YOU WANT YOUR MONEY BACK?, WOULDN'T YOU HOLD THE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR BAD VACATION?, WOULDN'T YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENT CHOICE IF YOU
WHERE TOLD THIS AHEAD OF TIME?, WOULDN'T YOU DO WHAT EVER IT TOOK TO GET YOUR MONEY BACK?. YOU WOULD,this is all about being gven the choice to make your mind up.Another reason i do not agree with you when you say that your insurance company should not pay, is because if you are having these complications and it's affecting your well being and a operation would possibly help you, then i think that is why we have medical insurance.I think everyone would agree with me on this. I really don't think we pay for insurance premium just for the fun of it, we pay so that when we need medical treatment, it's there for us.NOT THE DR.

CPTwomen members have testified in front of the IL and CA Court, the IL Gov. Task Force, the Sunset Review Committee, (Senator Liz Figueroa), NOW, and more. What occurred has been made a matter of public record. The CPTwomen are making public the issues which millions of other women have faced in silence. Issues such as women are not informed at the time of their tubal ligation that there is a risk of hormonal imbalance occurring. For the CPTwomen to continue its mission to move this issue to the forefront of government, we must ask for a small contribution/subscription fee from all those who wish to communicate with us and participate at the Coalition's Bulletin Board
