UN Tells Mexico To Stop Forced Sterilizations

Yahoo News

A UN anti-discrimination committee strongly urged Mexico to stop forced sterilizations of indigenous people and comply with an international convention.

The Committee against Racial Discrimination, comprised of 18 independent experts, told Mexico to “adopt all the necessary measures to put an end to this practice, to investigate it impartially, (and) to try and punish the perpetrators.”

The Mexican government admitted to the committee that forced sterilizations continue in some poor states, but denied being involved and said it was trying to put a stop to the practice.

    Perhaps the Mexican Consulates in the U.S. should consider that program for all their foreign nationals that apply for the Matriculas. Perhaps they can partner with Health Net. HA, HA, HA.

    OMG, I can’t believe you said that!

    BTW, there is an ongoing discussion on this Health Net thing going on at SOS.
