  1. This happened because in most cases the women already had 7 to 10 children and were living on welfare. They couldn’t take care of the ones they had already. While it may seem wrong, it certainly was common sense. Seems like medical staff at the time were trying to help and now we need to apologize?

  2. This is so sad! I thought this had to do with the forced sterilization in residential schools but this is recent!
    Those who did the coercing are the ones who should not propagate. The world has enough ignorant people!

  3. Experimentations and unwarranted medical surgery by ignorance and against tribal peoples is an old method and one I disapprove off, before and during WWII the fascist supremacist regime of that era sterilized hundreds of their own German people and anyone they liked, and I say again I am against male and female sterilization, also preceding WWII the European fascist regime established experimental installation to work of bodily comparisons or the purpose of racial exclusion from whites of the Mongolians and Indigenous Indians of the South America(s) they used Brazilian Kiowas and Koiswas descents like guinea-pigs changing the colours of brown Retina to blue and Serialization of tribes people, the German academics of that political party did not care who they experimented on and after the Nuremberg trails the cases of reparations were endless, forced sterilization which I totally disagree with affected both genders of tribal peoples and in some cases is still being used unbeknown to many people as a means to ensure that various fascist extremist ideologists never have to have any subversive opposition to themselves in future tenths.
    Some years ago the scientific and medical world of the West found out that certain people have especially strong genes that are prominent in various ethnic groups of tribal peoples opposed their dominating rule and threatened their totalitarian control so various heads of organizations and establishments set about a sterilization program on indigenous ethics to ensure their future rule over them could face little opposable argument (you can find a comparison reference in the documentary entitled American Hate, where a specialist outlines that fear of loss of future of control-ism)
    There can be no real compensation for forced sterilization even though each and every person sterilized against their will known or unknown to them must be compensated and the persons brought to justice and the is victims be no longer living then the families should be compensated in the same manner. where relevant documents prove this is the case
    People say that religion is a terrible killer but political ideology where medical science is its tool is a greater monster.

  5. What is the exact cost to my People when apologies abound after getting caught? What is the essence of the apology if it was taken after being caught? I’m sorry that I murdered future generations? This is an institutionalized learned concept from european immigrants who keep teaching it to their own offspring. The word’s that you fail to use is genocide before conception. Anyone who stood there and said nothing is just as guilty as the one’s that performed, ordered and carried out these procedures. They are all complicit in the crime of genocide. They all need to be held accountable with criminal prosecution and sentences of death or life in prison. After all isn’t that what the world court did to the Nazis at the Hague?
