    Eugenics was nothing more than fascists justifying their sadistic impulses with fake concern for genetics. They never advocated sterilizing people with actual genetic defects, like tay-sachs or cystic fibrosis, because that would target people with the resources to fight back. Unwed mothers and the mentally ill were chosen precisely because they were helpless.

    The victims of this nightmare should be compensated generously.

    Not saying it's right, but then again sometimes it's not wrong.
    The thing is, legislation is rarely individualized. Such decisions would be made in situations like the OP.

    The situation with the person in the OP was definitely wrong.
    I'm just saying that, some times there may be reasons that could justify it.

    Although it's a scary premise either way.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I agree that there are appropriate instances where it should happen. My only problem is that it would become mandatory for the "wrong" people. And who then decides who the right and wrong people are to sterilize?
