‘Forced’ Sterilization Of Brazilian Woman Sparks Uproar

WEB Notes: When you lose the ability to control your own body, you have lost any freedom you thought you had. Oh that does not happen here in the US. Really? Have you never heard about forced vaccination in the work place? In some work environments, you either “comply” or lose your job.

Claims that a drug-addicted Brazilian woman was subjected to forced sterilization are sparking accusations of a nightmarish “dystopia” in a country where a leading presidential candidate has stirred controversy with his own birth control proposals.

The facts of the case not under dispute are that Janaina Aparecida Quirino, an addict with numerous children, had her tubes tied after a ruling by a judge in Mococa, near Sao Paulo.

But according to a report in Folha de S.Paulo newspaper, the woman was homeless and the procedure was performed without her consent.

By the time the judge’s ruling came to appeal at a higher court, “the mutilation had already occurred,” wrote the author of the report, the constitutional law professor Oscar Vilhena Vieira.
