Breast Implants Made Us Sick, Say Women Marching in D.C.
A growing sisterhood say they suffered painful and life-threatening symptoms from their textured breast implants, and now they want the U.S. government to ban them. The women, who call themselves "breasties," got the implants for various reasons. Some received reconstruction after mastectomies and others wanted cosmetic enhancements. Now they're all saying the implants made them sick, and they're on a mission to make sure other women don't have to go through what they went through.
