8. For Amy J. Reed MD, PhD and the others

Morcellation of uterine fibroids to extract them efficiently from a woman's abdomen through small incisions causes stage 4 cancer in 1 in 400 women with symptomatic uterine fibroids; this according to the chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Harvard's Brigham and Women's Hospital and a draft manuscript submitted to the New England Journal of Medicine.

Please study our public petition at the below link to help us enforce a moratorium on this practice by the gynecological specialty. I do not understate, this is a disaster in women's health that, because of professional complacency, requires a public outcry to bring to a stop.
