Abstract

"City" piece reporting that most doctors in Portland won't perform a tubal ligation on women under 30 years of age, but men under 30 have little trouble finding doctors who will perform vasectomies. Dr. Arthur Winter, a urologist in Biddeford, said that's probably because vasectomies are a simpler procedure than tubal ligations. With anecdotal evidence supporting the claim.
