ALBUQUERQUE (CN) - A clinic nurse first removed her intrauterine birth-control device without permission, says the patient in a federal action, then told her that "having the IUD come out was a good thing," because "I personally do not like IUDs. I feel they are a type of abortion. I don't know how you feel about abortion, but I am against them." (via Courthouse News)

The nurse's excuse: 'Everyone in the office always laughs and tells me I pull these out on purpose because I am against them, but it's not true, they accidentally come out when I tug.'

Lady, WTF. It takes a whole lot of tugging to take an IUD out.

As someone noted on the comments page, this is a direct result of the recent law Bush signed that allows health care professionals to refuse to provide medical care that goes against their ideology.

Two more days. Just two more days.

D'oh! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fictionalknight for prodding me to post a rabbit update. But first, here's a picture:

Before Animal Control arrived to help me catch Perpetua, my mum's friend showed up. It turns out the friend has rabbits of her own, and agreed to keep Perpetua for a while. Phew. I was worried as heck, not to mention guilty for calling Animal Control in the first place. Today the friend brought the rabbit back to us so we could have a chat and let Perpetua roam free in the garden.

On my list: some alfafa hay and treats for the next time she visits.
