Recall Yaz Birth Control Drug, Mother Tells FDA Panel
 

Joan Cummins testified today at a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee on the safety of newer birth control pills, including Yaz and Yasmin, which contain drospirenone. In September 2010, Cummins’ daughter Michelle Pfleger suddenly died from a blood clot allegedly caused due to her taking Yaz, a prescription birth control drug manufactured by Bayer Corporation.

Independent studies have found a two to three times greater risk of blood clots for women taking birth control drugs containing drospirenone than earlier generation birth control drugs. These earlier generation birth control drugs do not contain drospirenone and are just as effective in preventing pregnancy.

Ms. Cummins told the FDA panel:

My name is Joan Cummins. My daughter Michelle was an amazing young woman. Vivacious, beautiful, accomplished. She was looked up to by her peers and cherished by her family. Michelle was extremely intelligent and an exceptional student.

At eighteen, she was just starting her freshman year at Elon University in North Carolina, when she collapsed on the way to one of her morning classes on a day I will never forget, September 24, 2010. She was rushed to the hospital by paramedics, but died from cardiac arrest from a pulmonary embolism.

My daughter was on Yaz. One day she was a healthy eighteen-year-old full of life with a promising future ahead of her, the next she was gone. Because she has been robbed of her voice, others must speak for her and for all of the others who are still taking these Yaz pills.

Do you all think this is some kind of academic debate?

Are you seriously debating whether independent studies are trumped by Bayer studies? If there is even a question that there is more risk with these pills, we needed all of this? If there are so many questions about whether these pills are more dangerous, what are we doing here? Because of all of the alternative pills, the questions alone tell us that these pills must be removed.

In my mind, these drugs should be removed from the market tomorrow. By leaving them on the market, you are confusing the situation. My daughter is dead because Bayer confused the situation. Please fix this.

No one would think that responsible scientists would allow that. It is worse than insanity. It is a sickness called greed.

My daughter did not need Yaz. Bayer needed Yaz.

As for me, I need my daughter back. You can’t give her back. But you can, you absolutely can prevent other mothers from coming here with broken hearts.

Please remove these drugs! If you don’t, you will answer for it.
