Ethics of Tubal Ligation – Part 2

Posted Jul 31 2009 11:52am
This case report is about a 26 year old woman with no children who had a tubal ligation at age 22. She changed her mind about wanting to have children and came to Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center to have her tubes untied. But her tubal ligation was with such a destructive method that tubal reversal was not possible. The question is raised, since there are tubal ligation methods that can be reversed, is it ethical for a doctor to destroy the tubes in a young woman with no children?
