The FDA is in Pharma's wallet pocket. Safety studies? What are those, and who in the FDA cares. They promote and protect Pharma from its victims when their mandate is to protect people from Pharma victimization

Birth control patches like this may be helpful for those women who are not too compliant with other forms of contraceptives. However, this information must be relayed to the general public for proper guidance. The FDA should ensure that all users of this device understand the risks involved with this product. http://www.vaginalmeshlawsuit.com/
