Advocating for women's health rights
Open Letter To: All Representatives and Lawmakers
On behalf of the CPTwomen and the undersigned, I present to you the following petition for your support in our efforts to create a law that would protect women from forced or fraudulent consent to tubal ligation/sterilization.
Women have not been given full disclosure and consent as to the risks associated with the procedure which has been and continues to be presented to the public at large as being 100% safe without negative impact on a woman's general functioning.
The medical literature and the clinical findings establish that many women are essentially castrated from their tubal ligation. The surgical castration of these women results in premature menopause, increased rates of osteoporosis, as well as increased rates of heart disease. The medical literature and the clinical findings also establish higher rates of hysterectomy for women who have been sterilized.
We oppose the practice of withholding information about tubal ligation surgeries.
Withholding information constitutes forced or fraudulent consent. Not without proper protection and defined law will this practice of medical abuse end.
Knowing of your compassion for women's issues and human rights we present to you this petition and pray your support.
