    Haaretz published an extract from a letter sent by the Ministry of Health to units administering the drug. Doctors were told “not to renew prescriptions for Depo Provera for women of Ethiopian origin if for any reason there is concern that they might not understand the ramifications of the treatment”.



    AND


    Well, the number was 30 because that was the number of Ethiopians the journalist interviewed. The hit rate was 100%. Wonder what it would be if they interviewed all 100k?

    Yes, I'm sure the official report will not be a white wash.

    Yeah, and the media assertion that Israel sterilized 100,000 without their consent and them knowing based off of media sources is entirely accurate and should be accepted

    People with a bias against Israel or a desire to believe that they are an evil nation will accept anything from any source that is critical of the nation without digging any deeper and trying to find facts without the spin associated with it.

    Depo-Prova is a temporary birth control method. As new, impoverished immigrants, it might not be the best time to have more children. It is not sterilization.

    It was based on the investigative report of an Israeli Jew.

    Just so I get this straight, and investigative report turned up the evidence, Israel denied it, when shown more proof they admitted it and THEN changed their policy.

    I guess it never happened.

    I would like to see more information before judging what happened. I will state that if the shots were administered without the knowledge and consent of those receiving them, those responsible should be removed from the health industry, barred from further medical practice, and subject to compensating those who received the shots and for any criminal prosecution to which they could be held accountable.

    Since everyone seems more interested in tossing about various accusations:

    Gamzu’s letter came in response to a letter from Sharona Eliahu-Chai of the Association of Civil Rights in Israel, representing several women’s rights and Ethiopian immigrants’ groups. The letter demanded the injections cease immediately and that an investigation be launched into the practice.

    About six weeks ago, on an Educational Television program journalist Gal Gabbay revealed the results of interviews with 35 Ethiopian immigrants. The women’s testimony could help explain the almost 50-percent decline over the past 10 years in the birth rate of Israel’s Ethiopian community. According to the program, 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.”
