Further Mutilation of Women?

B.C. researchers are urging gynecologists to remove a woman's fallopian tubes during a hysterectomy or tubal ligation as a means of preventing ovarian cancer, one of the deadliest malignancies affecting Canadian females.

And you know what? If I get a mastectomy, that will reduce my chances of getting breast cancer by 100%. [/sarcasm]

Are we going to have fallopian tube removals on demand in the name of cancer prevention now? My body, my choice, dammit!

And if you have your fallopian tubes removed, it's not a tubal ligation any more, isn't it?
