Parallels in Banning Implants, Abortions

March 02, 1992

Dr. Sonia Brody of Westwood states quite truthfully that if the FDA bans breast implants, the demand for them will not disappear, but the safety of the procedure might ("Get the Facts, Ma'am, Then Make Choice," Feb. 25).

"This issue of breasts for women is not going to go away," she says. "Ban it, and you will have women going to Mexico and South America getting botched jobs."

Say, this sounds similar to the abortion issue. If Roe vs. Wade should be overturned, abortion won't go away--but women will be getting botched jobs.

A bit ironic to think that all these larger, more attractive breasts could be a factor in larger numbers of unwanted pregnancies--but no matter what issue is at stake, women should be able to choose for themselves without fear for their safety.
