Project Censored: Promoting Media Literacy, Democracy and Pelvic Mesh News!

Project CensoreddFebruary 29, 2016 ~ Finally!   Some media coverage on the issue of pelvic mesh. In an in-depth conversation,  Micky Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored talked at length with your editor, Jane Akre about transvaginal mesh, the problems, the issues the failings of our FDA.  

This interview was heard in 32 US cities in the last couple of weeks.

Project Censored began at Sonoma State University with its media literacy program and the school puts out an annual Project Censored book, which highlights important stories which never see the light of day on mainstream media.

I thought Micky and Peter had some excellent questions. I answered with many of the concerns and questions you readers have brought to my attention.  Thank you for educating me and empowering this media message.   Click on the speaker then the arrow to open up the sound track!

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    I can’t wait to get their everyone !!! My heart runs over with joy & relief !! I feel like a wounded bird that’s found a nice person to a good person to give me CPR & something to feel good about . I no longer have to live is darkness thinking I’m not loved not worthy to even be a grandmother , mother or wife !!! I do matter , doctors may have broke my heart into a millions pieces and thought they never believed me . Being talk to like I was criminal . My story will be heard and one day I pray the doctors that stripped me down to the bare dirt will hear my story too . God will replace my pain with my my faith & walk with gods love. I can do it .

    I forgot to add you blew me away when you talked about the Orange bag and cutting it to look like its medical and you pay a fee and it got approved OMG people need to be fired in these departments.

    It was good to here that the people interviewing you had knowledgeable questions they where asking you even when auto Amun was braught up,and you answered everyone of them with an answer that was straight forward and to the point.

    Great interview
