    Roma woman goes to UN claiming sterlisation without consent.

    Kovac C; Hajnal Á

    BMJ. British Medical Journal. 2004; 328:[3] p..

    A Roma woman who alleges she was sterilised without her consent during an emergency procedure at a Hungarian hospital is taking her case to the United Nations. Records show that the woman, then aged 28, who was undergoing labour pains and bleeding heavily, was taken by an emergency vehicle to Szatmár-Beregi Hospital in Fehérgyarmat in northeastern Hungary on 2 January 2001. Examinations determined that the placenta had ruptured and that her unborn infant had died, said Dr András Kanyó, who, with other members of the hospital's emergency team, had been alerted by emergency medical personnel to the woman's imminent arrival. "Following the ultrasound and a physical examination, I asked her about her family, and she said she had three children. I asked if she planned to have any more, and she said no," said Dr Kanyó, a gynaecologist, anaethesiologist, and intensive care specialist. (excerpt)
