Hufnagel lost her license in
California even though no one suffered under her care, not even an infection, but because
it was alleged that she refused to offer a hysterectomy. This was later proven in
court to be a false allegation. The judge, feeling that he needed to punish
her in some type of matter ordered probation. The CMB refused to take judicial
notice and revoked her license.
And what was taken from Hufnagel's home yesterday, in the fishing
expedition to "prove" the case against Hufnagel? Her phones, all of her
computers, an application for financial aid for her daughter's schooling, paperwork
dealing with her bankruptcy and divorce which she desperately needs, her water bill which
must be paid .....
Why is it not publicized that a woman will lose 30% of her bone mass within 2 years of having a hysterectomy? Why is it not publicized that 70% of women that get their tubes tied end up with a hysterectomy within 5 years - the solution offered to the problems associated with getting tubes tied?
Women are being butchered unnecessarily, are not begin informed, and frequently end up with hysterectomies without their consent.
Hufnagel, working with CA
Senator Diane Watson, (now CongressWoman Watson) managed to get informed consent laws
passed in California, despite the threats from members of the CMB that she would never
practice medicine in CA again if she continued to push for the law. She received
opposition from the American College of Obresteicn and Gynocoly (ACOG). (see letter
below) HB-135 - Informed Consent to Hysterectomy, is now on the law books,
but it never has been enforced.
