As many as 100 Native women say medical professionals in Saskatchewan coerced them into surgical sterilizations. If true it’s a troubling resurrection of a despicable practice Native people had hoped was well in the past.

The UN Committee Against Torture recommends Canada adopt laws to criminalize the involuntary sterilization of women. We’ll find out the extent of the current allegations along with the historical context of sterilizing Native women.
