More than 150 women claim to have fallen pregnant while taking Anulette CD, an oral contraceptive pill that was distributed by the Chilean government and is manufactured by Silesia, a subsidiary of the German pharmaceutical company, Grünenthal. Without the option to legally terminate their pregnancies, if they wanted to, or any real accountability from the government or the drug companies, the women, represented by the Chilean sexual and reproductive rights group Corporación Miles, are preparing to file a class-action lawsuit in the civil courts.
“We expect that there are many more women with this problem, especially because the State has not claimed any responsibility,” said Laura Dragnic, legal coordinator at Corporación Miles. While no one is denying production problems with the pills, pharmaceutical company Grünenthal, its Chilean subsidiaries, and government representatives all seem intent on shifting blame onto each other, or even to the women involved.
