What is the E-Free Act?
The E-Free Act aims to revoke the FDA’s pre-market approval status given to Essure’s developer Conceptus in 2002. This PMA status is crucial for Bayer and Essure activists due to the fact that it provides a legal shield against thousands of women who’ve reported serious adverse events from the device.
