California Female Inmates Sterilized; Doctor Said It Was More Cost Effective Than Welfare
A horrifying picture of modern-day eugenics is emerging in California, the state that was once known as the country’s most prolific sterilizer, with as many 20,000 people losing their ability to procreate between 1909 to 1964. They were so well-known for their practice of preventing the ‘inferior’ from breeding that historians say Nazi Germany contacted the state’s eugenics leaders in the 1930s. You know they must have been doing something terribly, terribly wrong if Hitler was seeking their advice.
That shameful past is coming back to haunt the state as a new report emerges that almost 150 female prison inmates were sterilized between 2006 and 2010 without state approval. The report released by The Center for Investigative Reporting claims that at least 148 women received tubal ligations during that time frame. Records show that between 1997 and 2010 the state paid $147,460 to doctors to perform the surgery on inmates.
According to advocates and prison inmates, the staff targeted women they believed would return to prison in the future. OB-GYN, Dr. James Heinrich, who worked at Valley State Prison for Women claims the practice was one that helped poor women who faced the possibility of developing complications from future cesarean sections. Which is entirely possible but not his real motivation, as he goes on to explain. The good doctor commented on the cost effectiveness of the surgeries, claiming that the money spent was not a very large amount, all things considered.
“Over a 10-year period, that isn’t a huge amount of money,” Heinrich said, “compared to what you save in welfare paying for these unwanted children – as they procreated more. They all wanted it done,” he said of the sterilizations. “If they come a year or two later saying, ‘Somebody forced me to have this done,’ that’s a lie. That’s somebody looking for the state to give them a handout.”
