Family blames birth control for woman's death
By Matt PorterSeptember 16, 2013
Oneonta, NY (WBNG Binghamton) When Claire Sperbeck sat down for breakfast with her 21-year-old daughter Justine on Aug. 28, she expected it to be like any other normal day.
"She came into the kitchen and she said to me my leg is bothering me, I think I pulled a muscle," Claire Sperbeck remembers.
But, her daughter suddenly passed out.
She had a pulmonary embolism, also known as a massive blood clot.
Paramedics were at the house in minutes and brought Justine to the hospital, but she never made it home.
"When I got to the hospital, they were doing CPR and she was gone," Claire Sperbeck said. "In just a matter of minutes, she was gone."
Justine Sperbeck's injury is similar to complaints across the country about a new form of birth control using a patch instead of a pill.
Justine had been using the patch called Ortho Evra made by a subsidiary of the Johnson and Johnson Company.
