So this lady seems to have a pattern of "accidentally" yanking out IUD's, against patients wishes, if this story is accurate. Disgusting. Not to mention she apparrently doesnt understand that a IUD's method of birth control generallly PREVENTS conception. What I find alarming about this is the quote that suggests her workers simply laugh about the possibility of her commiting assault.Woman Says Anti-Abortion Nurse Removed IUD Without Permission, Then Lectured Her
ALBUQUERQUE (CN) - 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."
The patient sued Presbyterian Health Services Rio Rancho Family Health Center and nurse practitioner Sylvia Olona in Federal Court.
The plaintiff says she went to Rio Rancho to have the strings on her IUD shortened.
The complaint states: "As soon as Defendant Olona began speaking to (the plaintiff), she questioned her about her choice of contraception.
"Defendant Olona 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.'
The plaintiff demands damages for battery, constitutional violations and negligence. She is represented by Ryan Villa with the Law Office of Robert Cooper.
Lets hope that today's "conscience clause" mentality does embolden ladies like this nurse, or encurauge this sort of thing.
