BECOMING THE MONSTER YOU FOUGHT:
Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without their consent (ALISTAIR DAWBER, SUNDAY 27 JANUARY 2013, Independent)
Posted by Orrin Judd at January 28, 2013 5:58 PMIsrael has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.The government had previously denied the practice but the Israeli Health Ministry's director-general has now ordered gynaecologists to stop administering the drugs. According a report in Haaretz, suspicions were first raised by an investigative journalist, Gal Gabbay, who interviewed more than 30 women from Ethiopia in an attempt to discover why birth rates in the community had fallen dramatically.
