For Immediate Release:
Twitter Awareness & Accountability Campaign
Friday, September 19, 2014-Sunday, September 21, 2014
In 3 days get:
September 19, 2014
Who: Medical #MeshVictims World-Wide tweeting their little finger off and asking for the public and media’s support-by signing the petition #WomenAgainstEssure and to #GetActive on social media in support. (Upside, we’re just asking for you to sign a petition-upside-no ice buckets required)
What: #CleanUpYourMesh #CleanUpYourMeshFDA Twitter Campaign to unite all #meshvictims while #bringingawareness of the dangers of #mesh to the public and working together individual manufactures as well as the government via petitions for calling for an industry-wide mesh recall.
Awareness without action will fall flat; and, why the #IceBucketChallenge (tied to the challenge & donations) was far more successful than #BringBackOurGirls (people didn’t know what to do beyond holding a sign on Twitter). This campaign won’t require you to ruin hair or suits by getting wet, make a donation or take a picture of yourself holding up a sign on Twitter. Our #AwarenessAndAction is simple and it’s only three days long! So please #GetActive
Currently there are over 100,000 lawsuits against the different manufacturer’s of transvaginal mesh and mesh product. And of those 100,000 over 30,000 federal lawsuits set in West Virginia are against the largest producer of the mesh products Johnson & Johnson (JNJ); and, for context less than 30,000 people suffer from ALS in the United States. People have seen the late attorney ads on television about #Mesh and incorrectly assumed that all the mesh cases were over; and, that’s really the only media coverage these cases are getting. #MediaBlackout #Mesh
If it wasn’t for people like Jane Akre (known for her stand against Fox News/News Corp and censorship around Monsanto which was documented in The Corporation)and her continued work on the site #MeshMedicalDeviceNewsDesk few would know about the number of people who have been forced to suffer in silence; but, many of the #MeshVictims have decided to band together to have their voices heard and they’re coming on strong but need the publics help!
Perhaps the #MediaBlackout #Mesh is because the same people who fund mesh also fund the media.
Sadly, this could have, and still could be, prevented but people like Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) spokesperson Sheri Woodruff making medical claims to the media; and, a very specific media The Wall Street Journal, is a clear manipulation of the facts. (Reuters does not get response from Sherri Woodruff)
The medical device companies (who stand to profit from such statements) do not get to decide or infer if a product is a “gold standard of treatment” the educated medical community along with the FDA does.
Companies that make the mesh will continue to sell these products putting profits before patients, continuing to hurt us, our wives, our mothers, our sisters our aunts unless as a community we #forceaccountability form the companies that sold this mesh that’s breaking apart inside of our women and painfully migrating throughout their bodies. Three revision surgeries or more are not uncommon to remove the mesh; and, once it’s removed many are left with nerve damage and sexual dysfunction.
Bayer’s Essure intrauterine device, another such product, was designed as an option for women who, after children decided for a permanent birth control option. Some of these women are in their early 30’s and 40’s fatigued from the infections the migrating mesh is causing, not able to move or hold jobs because of the intense pain. Is this fair to our young mothers who can’t pick up our children, nieces and nephews from school, unable to stand long enough to get dinner with the family, to have their lives are forever changed forever because the FDA hasn’t recalled these products?
Unlike ALS we could have prevented the needless injuring or in the extreme cases killing any our 100,000 mothers, sisters, and wives who should have remained healthy. Despite the record breaking lawsuits it will continue to happen until there is #ForcedAccountability from the all the medical device industry and the FDA pulls all similar products made with polypropylene. In comparison Proctor & Gamble’s Crest, this week announced it will be pulling from the market their FDA approved polyethylene microbeads by March 2016 after public concern. Crest took a similar product out of toothpaste and makes of medical mesh devices want to keep on implanting at the expense of our women!
So while you may not know someone currently injured by mesh, if you, your wife, your mother or you sister were going in for surgery, these devices can still and, in some cases, are still being implanted. Help give all women a voice and by supporting the #CleanUpYourMesh Twitter campaign to force accountability from the manufacturers and the government.
#GetActive #CleanUpYourMesh #CleanUpYourMeshFDA
Please unite with all the #meshvictims and help #WomenUnitedAgainstEssure reach over 100,000 signatures by Sunday night!
This is easy just tweet, retweet, and sign petitions for a recall. No chilly water, we don’t even want donations, we’re just asking for each viewer to do a minimum of 10 tweets each of the three days of the campaign. And you don’t even have to take a picture of yourself holding a # sign. Again, just tweet the #’s above, retweet if you see them come across your feed or share on other social media accounts and help take a dangerous product of the market.
