Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Nurse Practitioner for Removing IUD Without Permission
Courthouse News Service: 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.
