This borders on disgusting and the kind of experiments run by racists at Tuskeegee and Nazi death camps.

Israel admits Ethiopian Jewish immigrants were given birth control shots

Shame on Israel for not disclosing what they were injecting into immigrant Ethiopians without their knowledge or consent. High dosed steroids are malpractice to begin with in the area of fertility. Withholding critical consent is even more eggregious.

Health Ministry Director General Prof Ron Gamzu acknowledged the practice — without directly conceding coercion was involved — in a letter to Israeli health maintenance organizations, instructing gynecologists in the HMOs “not to renew prescriptions for Depo-Provera for women of Ethiopian origin if for any reason there is concern that they might not understand the ramifications of the treatment.”

Depo-Provera is a high dosed steroid hormonal form of birth control that is injected every three months and works chiefly as an abortifacient, also preventing ovulation less frequently.
