A recent engineering graduate from Tulane University is attempting to make his millions by turning his senior project into a business.Ben Cappiello is seeking to “better” the lives of women around the world by improving the delivery system for the controversial contraceptive/abortifacient intrauterine device, commonly called the “IUD.” Unfortunately, like so many problems our world faces today, the medical flaws and dangers inherent to IUDs cannot be fixed a gun. Today, well-documented shortcomings and dangerous side effects of the IUD include device expulsion, pregnancy complications, ectopic (tubal) pregnancies, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine perforations, migration of the device into the abdomen, becoming embedded in the uterus, and potential for behavior as an abortifacient. Two types of IUDs are currently available in the United States, the Copper T and Mirena.
