Two Missouri women, who claim the non-surgical sterilization device Essure caused painful and life-altering complications, have joined a grassroots online campaign led by activist Erin Brockovich to remove the device from the market.

Brockovich spoke to KCTV5 via Skype about her reasons for launching the page.

“My story is being a voice for them because they are not being heard,” Brockovich told KCTV5. “It’s about awareness. I have had so many women who have written to us now and said, ‘Thank you for the post. Thank you for sharing the stories. We didn’t know about the situation. And now we feel we are better informed to possibly make a different decision.'”
