    Being in the medical profession I have an image of "sterilization" being to render something free of life, as in to kill it off. When you sterilize an instrument there is nothing left that can grow. It's all dead. It's not a temporary sort of thing.

    If you say the Israelis were "sterilizing" those women you are miss-communicating. It improperly, in my view, uses a word that has a particular connotation that falsely connects what the Israelis are doing with the bad deeds of others in the past, such as the forced sterilization of retarded people and the insane back in the 1940s. That is clearly not what is happening since the worst a dose of Depo-Provera can do is delay conception by a few months.
    Can we get past the goddamn word "sterilize" and talk about the nature of the issue now?

    I honestly think we can. Of course that is only as long as we "all" agree to understand what "frozen peas" means at any one tangential "internet" moment though. Sometimes for the sake of a "fruitless" argument that goes on for weeks, things get quite pointless. To the point even the chief protagonist can't keep track of it all, even though as he will tell you, his word and commentary is rock solid. To repeat a phrase, ahhhh the internet!
