In brief: Both bad

tubal lig. cutting off a naturally healthy functioning part of the body God made , many health benefits to hormonal balance to ovulation, there is 4 x more risk after a tubal to get a hysterectomy later for cramps and other ; remember the egg now has to go in an unnatural path.
the copper iud causes abortion killing of human life by inflamtion;more infections, try natural family planning nfp.org

In brief: Need more info

I am a strong proponent of the adage "if anything can happen, it will".
Tubal ligation means that the sperm will be blocked from traveling through the Fallopian tubes. The copper IUD while it is an efficacious product is not always 100% effective in preventing a pregnancy. The tubal ligation many times is permanent while the IUD can be easily removed if & when you want to become pregnant.
