Woman Says Anti-Abortion Nurse Removed IUD Without Permission, Then Lectured Her

A clinic nurse first removed her intrauterine birth-control device without permission, says the patient in a federal action, then told her that "having the IUD come out was a good thing," because "I personally do not like IUDs. I feel they are a type of abortion. I don't know how you feel about abortion, but I am against them."

  "Olona [the nurse] stated, 'Everyone in the office always laughs and tells me I pull these out on purpose because I am against them, but it's not true, they accidentally come out when I tug.'

Link to whole article.

You do NOT tug on IUDs.  It makes them come out.

The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off. – Gloria Steinem

Why is it that many contemporary male thinkers, especially men of color, repudiate the imperialist legacy of Columbus but affirm dimensions of that legacy by their refusal to repudiate patriarchy?  – bell hooks
