A.H. Robins Co.'s plan to get out of bankruptcy helps the firm, its shareholders and its insurance carrier but not thousands of women injured by its Dalkon Shield, say victims of the intrauterine contraceptive device.

"For Dalkon Shield claimants, this reorganization plan is unfair, inadequate and contrary to the law," declared Karen Hicks, president of the Dalkon Shield Information Network, at a news conference in Washington Monday.

The network, representing women with grievances against Robins, urged 194,000 claimants to vote against the company's plan to emerge from Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code, which protects a firm from creditors as it reorganizes.
