Indian Country 42 #31 – Sterilization is Genocide

Articles

“The Saskatoon Health Region has apologized to Indigenous women who felt coerced into surgery that prevented them from bearing more children.

The agency commissioned an independent report earlier this year after women complained they were pressured by medical staff and social workers to have a tubal ligation, a procedure that involves clamping or severing the Fallopian tubes.

“I’m sorry that you were not treated with the respect, the compassion and all of the support that you needed and deserved,” Jackie Mann, a health region vice-president, said Thursday.

“No woman should ever be treated the way you were treated.”

The health region failed the women and the report is a call to do better, Mann said as she choked back tears.

“This report states that racism exists within our health-care system and we as leaders acknowledge this.”

The report was penned by two Indigenous health experts who are of Métis descent. Yvonne Boyer is a lawyer and Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Health and Wellness at Brandon University, while Judith Bartlett is a physician and former University of Manitoba professor.”
