Another Saskatoon woman says she was sterilized against her will - Saskatoon - CBC News


Another Saskatoon woman says she was sterilized against her will - Saskatoon - CBC News: Popp remembers being admitted to the hospital when she was six months into her pregnancy, suffering from gestational diabetes and cramping. There, a nurse asked her what birth control she'd been taking, and why she hadn't used condoms.

"I felt very harassed," Popp, who went on to file a formal complaint, said.

Two months later, she suffered a placental abruption and agreed to have a caesarian section.

"The doctors said, 'You don't want to be in this situation again,'" she said. They advised her to sign consent forms for a tubal ligation following the C-section.

"I feel very targeted. It was under duress. I was so hormonal at that time," Popp said. "They said it would be reversible, with no side effects."

Popp said she has never had any issues or history of taking alcohol or recreational drugs. She hopes by sharing her story, other women will come forward and begin to heal.

"As a mother I cannot tell you what this has done to my inner core," Popp added.
