Lots of stupid people on Free Republic.
Read the dang headline, folks: “Female inmates sterilized in California prisons without approval.”
What information is missing? “... without approval OF THE STATE.”
The “female inmates” wanted the procedure. The state, however, didn’t explicitly provide their “approval.”
Sheesh, buncha idiots taking over FR.
1. It’s called “informed consent,” not “succumbing to constant pressure from the people who hold your life and freedom in their hands.”
2. Some inmates have denied that any level of consent was given.
