Israel Forced Birth Control on Ethiopian Women Without Their Consent
From The Independent:
Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.
According to Haaretz, “while the women were still in transit camps in Ethiopia they were sometimes intimidated or threatened into taking the injection.”
“They told us they are inoculations,” said one of the women interviewed. “They told us people who frequently give birth suffer. We took it every three months. We said we didn’t want to.”
“We said we won’t have the shot,” recounted another woman. “They told us, if you don’t you won’t go to Israel.”
“The injections given to Ethiopian women are part and parcel of the overall Israeli attitude toward this wave of immigrants,” said one Haaretz Op-Ed writer.
