California Lawmakers Question Sterilizations of Inmates

California prison officials say doctors have performed permanent birth control procedures on inmates even though it was against their own regulation.

A 1999 memo directed health care managers to include a sterilization procedure in post-partum care that is specifically barred for state prisoners.

Republican State Senator Joel Anderson called for a hearing on what he called ‘outrageous practices.’

“When you’re talking about a woman’s reproductive rights, and removing them for the rest of her life, this is a serious decision and that woman should be able to make that choice [with] free will,” says Anderson.

Anderson says lawmakers are considering a bi-partisan bill to prohibit medically unnecessary birth control procedures to prisoners.

Prison officials say they halted the practice in 2010.

if you sterilize the criminals while they are in prison you will put the abortion lobby out of business

The detailed original report showed that these were repeat offenders with 4-6 kids who never raised them because they spent most of their time doing time.

Crack heads and criminals who had no ability to care for the children they burden the state with.

Yeah , if you are a drug addict who has spent 15 of the last 20 years in jail and everytime you get out for a few months you have a kid, you should rethink parenthood .

This is where criminals come from .

Remember when there was an outcry over Canadians adopting black kids? American blacks did not want to see kids removed from their culture doing better . They would rather see kids suffer than see another group being a better parent.

People would rather see kids suffer than sterilize people who are willingly having kids and abandoning them to horrific childhoods .
