Breast Implants: Recovery & Discovery
This was my original declaration in response to the Quackbusters SLAPP suit against me.
Ultimately all three plaintiffs lost to me, all the way to the Supreme Court of California
In a 27 page decision, the Superior Court sided with me on everything and declared the entire suit to be a SLAPP suit ... a common industry technique to stifle critics and activists such as myself.
Here is Judge Richmond's Opinion of July 25, 2001.
Based on the above, the Court concludes that Section 425.16 applies to Plaintiffs' Complaint, and that no Plaintiff has established by competent evidence a probability that he will prevail on his claim. Accordingly, Rosenthal's motion will be granted, and Rosenthal will be awarded reasonable attorney's fees and costs according to proof.
Almost immediately thereafter, late Summer, 2001, Barrett & Polevoy augmented their "Rag-tag Posse" of Usenet terrorists to harass, stalk and attempt to intimidate me and others named in this lawsuit.
To this day, there are 3 of their "Posse" members who have embedded themselves amongst the breast implant support system and have stalked me, attempted to access my bank accounts, and attempted to intimidate and frighten and defame many, many, many friends and associates of mine.
Together you can see them on the SBIPrivateClub.
Here Polevoy, affecting a disguise as "Vera" obsesses over his belief that I am in Costa Rica ... and ultimately his Clubmates, Jeffcoat and Penley-Ayers, go there to hunt me down.
Medscape Poll ... give your opinion on studies on breast implants. Final vote tallied ... overwhelmingly that MORE STUDIES are needed.
Meet Cindy Morrisey and her daughter Hilary, both affected from Cindy's breast implants. Hilary is helping others with her "Small Hands, Big Hearts" hair drive. Hilary says people who wish to donate their hair have until February 14, 2006!

Great photos from the FDA Hearings by Kathy Nye ... meet many of the wonderful people who gave testimony and support at the Hearings in April, 2005
Note from Ilena:
If you find any typos, busted links etc. and want to let me know ... I very much appreciate it! Our staff is only me, right now with all my heart and soul, wanting to keep our message in front of the public. It's been 10 years this August, and I've seen so many support groups and activists in this issue die ... or get too ill to fight Goliath anymore ... and these powerful women fade underground to protect their health and family life.
Corporate America and the Plastic Surgeon's Lobbies are no match for sick and dying women the Plastic Surgeon's Lobbies and the Junk Science Propaganda campaign ... and the combined PR campaigns are legendary.
One longtime support group leader, with no shortage of her own serious implant related health challenges put it this way to me:
"You on the other hand, just battling a world of multi-billion dollar corps, a world of murderously insane lunatics, and prepping for Court."
The Court she is referring to is the Supreme Court of California. Click here for the Quackbusters vs me.
The newsgroup I created in the Fall of 1995 is one medium that the Junk Science Campaign can not totally control as they have all others.
The Wild West of the Internet ... a visit there now will reveal a Corporate Lobbyist (Andrew M. Langer) totally embedded with and leading a small, vocal group of those who call themselves "legitimate"support group leaders who have tried to push me out of their mutual way since Autumn, 2001.
They have worked hand in hand with my Plaintiffs above and Inamed's former President.. to create a Smear Campaign against me ... so vicious ... it appears they have no boundaries. Since I began the newsgroup, their twisted version of my personal life has been broadcast wide & far. That it bears no relationship to reality doesn't faze nor slow them now in their defamation against me.
Together in what they named the "SBIPrivateClub" ... this group and and former Inamed President Patrick O'leary have hired a Private Investigator to hunt me down ... stalked friends of mine in their search, and attempted to access my bank accounts.
They are, in my opinion, the embodiment of the PR Plan describing the cover up of damning Dow Corning information ... and the creation of "networks."
These are typical tactics used for years by the "quackbusters" in their attempts to destroy chiropractors, holistic and alternative healers, naturopaths, fluoride activists, critics, radio show hosts, homeopaths and doctors working to uncover the mystery of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities -- to name but a few.
