Crimes of Omission: How Women who are Sold Essure, Filshie Clips or Tubal Ligation Become Victims of “Medical Battery”

Withholding information is a crime of “omission” which invalidates consent. Women then become victims of “battery” at the time of their sterilization ~Dr. V.G. Hufnagel


For almost a century women and the general public have literally been kept in the dark about known negative side effects of traditional female sterilization (tubal ligation via laparotomy or laparoscopy). Recently (since 2002) women have under duress been sold a permanent birth control device (Essure) which is even more harmful and has even more negative side effects then traditional tubal ligation.

When it is understood that negative information regarding sterilization is routinely and systemically withheld in order to compel women to undergo (any type of) sterilization it becomes evident that all consents are given under false pretenses.


When there is fraud or misinformation during education and consent to sterilization the entire consent becomes invalid.

Without valid consent, physical battery and “medical battery” transpires when the sterilization occurs.
