One thinks of the 1940s when the topic of the US government conducting unwanted medical procedures on American citizens without their consent or knowledge. However, unknown to many, the practice seems to be continuing.
Apparently, the Federal government is still at war with all Native Americans as forced sterilization was performed on as many Native Americans as possible under the eugenics program. These procedures were done by physicians and healthcare workers who volunteered for the government with full knowledge of their actions.
The 1970s seemed to be the decade where most of the abortions and sterilizations were performed with 3,406 sterilizations having been done without the subject's consent on all Indian Reservations from 1973 to 1976. This is the official report by the feds, but the actual numbers are more than likely much more than this figure. Up until 1980, thousands of abortions were also done on women of all ages who would come to the clinic for minor illnesses or injuries. In some cases, Native American women would come to the clinic to give birth and instead, an abortion would be performed. Hysterectomies, cases where the woman's cervix was sewn shut, ovaries removed, and sterilization of males was the norm for all Native Americans on all Indian Reservations.
Under the guise of eugenics, the Federal government attempted genocide of Native American population. Although not successful, the damage done is very significant, involving tens of thousands of people in multiple states.
Native Americans are not the only segment of the population in the US singled out for population control. In California, the official number of women incarcerated in the state prison system who were coerced into sterilization is 150. From 1997 to 2010, the state of California paid MDs $147,460 to perform sterilization on these female inmates. The state of California admits there may be many more than the 150 figure.
Forced and coerced sterilization in America has been going on for as long as medical science has had the capability of performing such procedures and involves much more than just Native Americans and female prisoners. Throughout the 1900's, sterilization and abortions were performed on mental institution patients, people deemed feeble-minded, the poor, blacks, Mexicans, the disabled, and anyone deemed by the medical profession to be out of the accepted norm.
The Federal government's eugenics program continues today under the guise of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), in which choice of physicians and procedures is out of the hands of many people covered by this Nazi style health care program. Under Obamacare, many are euthanized as well. Although not mentioned in the text of the ACA, euthanasia is accomplished by long wait periods, withholding some lifesaving procedures according to age, cost, or economic situation, and proclaimed availability of physician able to perform certain needed lifesaving procedures.
Conservatives concerned about legalized abortion should be concerned about the government conducting abortions and sterilization on the population, both without consent and knowledge of it even being done.
What we have experienced in the US so far regarding sterilization, abortion, and euthanasia without consent is pale to what the Federal government will be doing if our government is allowed to adopt any UN based climate change laws. Under the guise of sustainability, the Federal government not only will have free reign to euthanize, sterilize, and perform abortions on anyone it chooses, it will have a mandate along with projected numbers of people to be killed.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
