Ruth Archer BS: A snip at 200? (sterilizing addicts) (66* d) RE: BS: A snip at 200? (sterilizing addicts) 19 Oct 10

eenjay: "They are paying money to addicts who are unable to consider the consequences of their actions."

The MAJORITY of participants in the programme choose long-term, reversible contraception, not sterilisation. What are the consequences, apart from not having more babies? I would, as I have said, be happier if this were the only option on offer, but given that substantially more women have opted for a non-permanent solution, it would not appear that they are being pressurised into sterilisation.

I am not saying the programme on offer is perfect. But if certain aspects of the model were taken on by a government agency and offered as a short-term option (not a permanent solution, and certainly not compulsory) for women whose lives are in chaos, I would support it.
