Marcia Greenberg, a Washington, D.C. lawyer, testified recently before a Senate sub-committee that she had interviewed women in Tennessee who were being given an experimental contraceptive injection, without being told that the drug might cause dangerous side-effects. The drug in question is Depo-Provera. Greenberg discusses how physicians in Tennessee were prescribing the drug under their own authority and not under the authority of the FDA or the Upjohn company, and that the women were not given the appropriate consent forms. Interview by David Selvin for Pacifica Radio's Washington Bureau.
