Forced Sterilisation in California Women’s Prisons

This is another clip about the return of eugenics in America. This is The Young Turks discussing the sterilisation of 150 women in Californian prisons between 2006 and 2010. One of the Obstetricians-Gynaecologists involved, James Heinrich, stated that it was because the women had five kids or so already, and were a drain on state welfare. He denied, however, that they were sterilised against their will.

The programme reveals that the women were heavily pressured into having the operation. Some were even on the operating table and heavily sedated when their consent was requested. Many weren’t even told at all. They just had the operation done.

This adds further evidence that eugenics is making a surreptitious comeback under American Conservatives. I’ve discussed several times on this blog with the commenters here that the Tories on this side of the Atlantic have the same attitude towards the poor and disabled, and would like to see them similarly removed from the population. Considering how much the Conservatives and their fellows, UKIP, take from the Republican Party, I don’t doubt that they share this attitude, and would like to be able to do it over here too.

    They would get their way over here soon – the people won’t exactly stand up and stop it – would they?
