NP removes IUD - without client's consent

Anti-Choice Nurse Practitioner Removes IUD Without Woman's Consent

The above link takes you to the court document filed in New Mexico, concerning the case of a Nurse Practitioner who removes a client's IUD without her consent, and then proceeds to lecture the woman on her own beliefs on abortion.

This is appalling that a Nurse Practitioner would do something like this on purpose.

It is our job as nurses to give unbiased, non-judgemental care to all people we care for. This woman did not want her IUD removed, just the strings shortened. She never gave consent to have it removed, and then be lectured on how an IUD is an abortion method.

What do you think?

Here is another link to a blog post about the same situation.
