"A social worker convinced my mom to sign for me to undergo an operation that would prevent me from getting pregnant, not knowing all the while that I was being set up to be sterilized like I was some kind of animal."
Deborah Chesson spoke through tears Wednesday as she addressed a North Carolina task force on behalf of her mother.
Dozens of North Carolina citizens spoke at the public hearing against the state's five-decade forced sterilization program.
That's a wise form of birth control.
American Indian women have been sterilizde by govt hopitals for years!
NC has a really dark past but will deny it to the end. Look at what is going on with the school system in Charlotte. Charlotte and the surrounding areas have change for the worst. They constantly try to get rid of the past and people. They do not preserve history they try and erase it.
NC also has alot of problems with the police shooting teenagers. The cops down there answer to no one, they are renegades.
Sterilizations a bit much, but how about mandatory tube ties for welfare applicants. I think thats a fair trade for living off of my paycheck.
Can tube tying be undone? Not everyone on welfare is there for the long haul.. Maybe norplant instead? I think that's what it's called..
