Israeli government admits it had used birth control drugs without consent on some Ethiopian Jews.

Quote:
Ethiopian Jews in Israel are expressing outrage over revelations that the Israeli government gave some of them long-term birth control injections.

This week the Israeli government admitted it had used the drug on some Ethiopian women without their consent.

Many of the women say they now feel the state has been controlling their fertility.

yum_tea Disgusting. Just like no one should be forced to be pregnant against their will, no one should have birth control forced on them. Women have the right to control their fertility on their own. No government has the right to to make medical decisions for its people without their knowledge or consent.

Women, being just as much human beings as men are, have the right to have the absolute final say about what is or isn't done with their body, medically or otherwise.

Because Orthodox Zionist Israeli Jews are bigoted assholes. Basically it was done because these people were not white and the Israeli government has this giant fear of the Arabs and Blacks taking over. Which is why so many Arabs are not allowed to vote or become citizens.

Yeah, I figured it was something like that, but is there a source for that?

Well the article itself is a pretty good source. Could you think of any other reason why they wouldn't want Black Jews to procreate?

As for the Arab part, why do you think Israel refuses to negotiate a one state solution? Because they'd have to make all the Arabs in the West Bank Israeli citizens with the same rights as Jewish citizens. That would skew their government towards the Arabs. Especially since the Arabs have a birthrate much higher than the Jews. The Zionists fear that if they allow the Arabs in that Israel will no longer be a Jewish state. And they're right. So they do everything in their power to make sure that doesn't happen.

That what I was wondering. Is it because of Sickle Cell anemia? Is it because they are on the welfare system there? *goes to look*
