What are your thoughts on Angelina Jolie's recent mastectomy

Actress and director, Angelina Jolie, published a New York Times OP-ED piece today called, My Medical Choice (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/14/opinion/my-medical-choice.html), which chronicles her decision to have a preventative double mastectomy when she learned that she had a 87% risk of developing breast cancer due to a faulty gene.
