Pro-life leader criticises UK professor's support for coercive sterilisation

8 September 2010

Msgr Ignatio Barreiro-Carambula, interim head of Human Life International, has criticised calls for Britain's unfit to be forcibly sterilised. Professor David Marsland recently told the BBC that child abuse could be solved by permanently sterilising a small minority of parents with chronic mental illness, drug addiction or alcoholism. Msgr Barreiro said that only a corrupt person could make such evil sound reasonable. He also warned that people such as Professor David Marsland were not on the fringes of society, but part of the 'progressive' intellectual academy. [CNA, 3 September] http://bit.ly/aEwEUK

Mother speaks out against council over forced contraception bid on daughter

A mother of a woman whom British social services were attempting to force to take contraception has spoken out to the Daily Telegraph. The local council began court proceedings against a thirty year old woman, known only as Mrs A, hoping to secure a court order to force her to use contraception. The council told the court that because of Mrs A's low mental capacity she was unable to understand the consequences of not using contraception. Mr Justice Bodey said he could not sanction the use of forcible contraception by the state. The mother of Mrs A said that social services should be supporting, not attacking her daughter.
