35 year-old Tessa Savicki has nine kids raging in age from 3 to 21. She is alleging that when she had baby number 9, doctors performed a tubal ligation without her permission. She claims she told the doctors that she wanted an IUD. So she is suing. Her story – which was certainly meant to garner sympathy and embarrass the doctors and hospital – appeared in the Boston Herald on Sunday. But the Herald story revealed that Savicki is not married and on public assistance. Oh, but it gets better. In 2001, she sued CVS and a spermicide company because she got pregnant from using expired spermicde. Sympathy? Not so much.
A Springfield mom of nine said yesterday she has been bombarded with hate messages in the wake of a Herald article on her lawsuit against doctors who she claims permanently sterilized her without her written consent.
Tessa Savicki, 35, has received a dozen nasty text messages and comments on her Facebook page since Sunday’s article on the suit. She said she’s been attacked for being a poor, single mom who is on public assistance.
“It hurts. I don’t want my kids suffering,” said Savicki, who lives with her fiance and four of her kids and said she has even dyed her hair to avoid recognition. “One person told me, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself.”’
Savicki claims she has been in “committed relationships” with the fathers of her kids. Not committed enough to get married, though. Gee, I wonder why.

Friend of Angelo, Senator Chris Dodd has decided not to seek re-election.
Word of Dodd’s retirement plans comes after months of speculation about his political future, his faltering poll numbers and a growing sense among the Democratic establishment that he could not win a sixth term in the Senate. The news also came on the same day Sen. Byron L. Dorgan (D-N.D.) announced he would not seek reelection.
Once among the safest of incumbents, Dodd’s political star fell over a two-year period, during which he moved his family to Iowa to pursue the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination and was linked to a VIP mortgage loan program overseen by a controversial Wall Street financier. He also drew harsh questions about his oversight of Wall Street, as chair of the Senate Banking Committee, in the years when the nation’s financial system was heading toward near collapse.
Dodd’s poll numbers plummeted last spring before rebounding somewhat over the summer. But another dive in the polls late last year led to widespread concern that Dodd needed to vacate the seat for Democrats to have a chance at retaining it in the 2010 elections.
Dodd’s announcement comes on the heels of North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgon’s surprise announcement that he won’t seek another term.
In both cases, Harry Reid was the last person to know.
