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.
