PTS lawsuit

by Tracy (no login)


Perhaps if one lawsuit was filed on behalf of all of the women who have experienced PTS our voices could be heard. I don't know how such a lawsuit would be filed, but it seems that there should be a way. If state governments can sue the tabocco companys, why couldn't PTS women sue the medical profession as a whole - such as the American Board of Medicine? - for misinformation and withholding pertinent information that would enable women to make informed decisions regarding tubal ligation. For too many years after my tubal I was told that it was all in my head, nothing was wrong with me, etc. My own husband even started to think that I was a hypocondriact (? spelling) because of the way the Dr.'s responded to my symptoms. It would be nice to start holding the medical community responsible for their actions.

Take the Tubal Ligation I.Q. Test Are you outraged? Feel as though you and other women were not (are not) being informed? Think that a class action lawsuit should be filed on behalf of post tubal women because information was and still is being withheld by the ACOG! The CPTwomen invites all reading this forum to join the CPTwomen and communicate with us at the members' forum. All posting here and conversation here has been moved to the members' forum.

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
