Woman offered ’£200 to be sterilized’
2010 05 24
A woman has claimed she was approached near a health centre in Glasgow by three women who offered her £200 if she agreed to be sterilised.
Deborah Wilson said the offer was made as she left Possilpark Health Centre with her nine-year-old son on Friday.
The offer was made to Deborah Wilson in front of her son Jay.
Ms Wilson said the women told her they were from Project Prevention, a US group which pays drug addicts to be voluntarily sterilised.
Police advised anyone approached in a similar way to contact them.
Ms Wilson, a mother-of-two, said she was shaken by the incident.
"As we left the health centre I saw three ladies coming out of a car and they told me there was this new scheme, offering £200," she said.
"Then I saw a bit of paper in her hand and it had drug addicts written on it.
"I’m not a addict. I think I was approached because I was in the Possilpark area - it’s a well-known area for drugs - but that’s where my doctor is based."
Ms Wilson said she was particularly angry because the women had asked her in front of her son.
"I’m very hurt and angry that someone could approach me in the street and ask me those sorts of questions at all, let alone when I had my nine-year-old with me," she said.
"I asked her to leave me alone but she kept going on and on so I had an argument with her and got on the bus to go home.
"My son knew they were asking me questions, and he asked me what it meant to be sterilised."
Ms Wilson, who said she also saw the women approaching others after she had left, said she contacted Strathclyde Police when she returned home.
A Strathclyde Police spokesman said they believed it had been an isolated incident but advised anyone similarly approached to contact their local police station.
Project Prevention’s website states that its aim is to reduce the number of "substance-exposed" births to zero.
The group was not available for comment.

From Witches to Crack Moms: Women, Drug Law, and Policy
"Susan Boyd examines how the regulation of altered states of consciousness and women’s bodies is not new. Like the witches of old, women suspected of using illegal drugs today are persecuted and punished. From Witches to Crack Moms offers a critique of drug law and policy and its impact on women in the United States, and illuminates similarities and differences in Britain and Canada.
Informed by a feminist sociological perspective, Boyd discusses how drug law and policy is racialized, class-biased, and gendered. She highlights how punitive drug laws inform and shape social service and medical policy and practice. Boyd also provides insight into how the war on drugs and the regulation of reproduction intersect, culminating in a volatile mix.
Also examined is legal and illegal drug use, maternal drug use, and neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), against the backdrop of the regulation of all women. In addition, Boyd examines how prisons, social services, medical treatment, maternity care, drug treatment, and drug court policy and practice have been restructured as a result of the war on drugs."
