An article on the Sacramento Bee website states that it has been found that:
Doctors under contract with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation sterilized nearly 150 female inmates from 2006 to 2010 without required state approvals.
It has been reported by the former inmates and prisoner advocates that the prison medical staff coerced the women into the procedure, 'targeting those deemed likely to return to prison in the future'.

Regardless of the amount of money spent on sterilizing the inmates and apparently saved in the long run, and the perhaps justified concern for the inmates' children, it is absolutely sickening that these women are treated as if they are animals who should not be allowed to breed and do not get properly educated on their options.
