Medical Device Safety Act sign now

Please sign this petition in support of the Medical Device Safety Act, which Kennedy will be bringing before congress this year. The Supreme Court decided in Riegel v. Medtronic that the manufacturer should receive immunity for certain FDA-approved medical devices. Just because the FDA says a medical device is safe, doesn't make it so. My implanted defibrillator wasn't safe for me. I almost died on the the sidewalk of New York City last April while my heart was receiving 65 inappropriate & extremely powerful shocks due to a fractured wire. There are many others with similar experiences. Please sign & forward.
