Description

With the permission from the team over at Swindled Podcast, we are covering one of their best True Crime stories. It’s a story of lies.... cover-ups... and murder. But murder that was done out in the open while a company actually profited from women’s deaths. In today’s episode, we are discussing the Dalkon Shield, an IUD that killed at least twenty women, hurt hundreds of thousands, and is still being used overseas today

Huge thanks to Swindled Podcast for their research into this episode. Check out their episode, The Contraceptive, wherever you get your podcasts, or on their website SwindledPodcast.com, and follow them on Twitter @swindledpodcast and Instagram @swindledpodcast

1st off I just want to say that you girls are awesome and I love your show and love what you stand for! Secondly I really appreciate the feminist aspect of this episode. I do however at 1 little thing to add, you said that men only have condoms to use as contraceptive while women have to endure all of this different things and putting stuff into their bodies, I don't forget that men can get a vasectomy if they choose to. That does not mean that I am trying to discredit what all of those women went through regarding the dalkon shield, That was just messed up all the way around! Anyway keep up the good work and I love you ladies and I love your show and I cannot wait for the next episode! Mike N. Waterford MI

The thing is, medical devices are still not under the most scrutiny by the FDA! Check out 'The Bleeding Edge' on Netflix if you found this interesting. The documentary also discusses a contraception device

Haven Himmi That is a very good show! I believe it also covered A breast implant or something didn't it? And I saw one episode about a cobalt hip replacement or something? Still a really interesting show as you said!

IUDs are still the devil! I had constant ongoing pain the whole time. I urge everyone to reconsider this decision!

Seal757 True, I still think doctors need to be consulted. My take away from this was that they were covering up his financial investment and that really tainted his push to get this out there. Mainly my point was for women to do more than just read a few comments or listen to a podcast before making a choice. I know people who swear by the pill, but I would never recommend it. Different strokes!

rrrrhia Actually, it is up to the woman to become as knowledgeable as possible in order to make her own decision. The point of the podcast is that the medical professionals should not be blindly trusted. Damn, it's always on us!:(
