Re "Choosing Any Surgery Is a Personal Right," by W. Grant Stevens, Commentary, Nov. 17: A year ago, my sister died in surgery while undergoing a breast augmentation procedure. She did not need one. There was nothing wrong physically with this kind, gentle and beautiful woman. Somehow, she thought that her clothes might fit better if she had a more shapely bosom. Her husband was against this procedure and warned her that any surgery could be risky. I will never get over her death.

This is classic civil disobedience. Farrow spoke out and accepted the consequences.
