Sex, Young Love and Choice

Beyond the question of abortion, there’s the sad and difficult history of sterilization in the United States. Usually, the victims have been poor, and often they’ve been women of color. Katilin Prest, from the AudioSmut podcast, brings us one woman’s story and a some background on the modern face of the eugenics movement.

For more reading, check out this CIR report on sterilized inmates in California and see the book by Dorothy Roberts, Killing the Black Body.
