surgical instruments 2Some Peruvian women who were forced or tricked into sterilization in the past are fighting back now.

According to the Population Research Institute (PRI), the Clinton administration strong-armed the government of Peru in the 1990s into sterilizing more than 300,000 women -- mostly indigent descendants of the Incas who relied on $10 million from USAID. PRI spokesman Steven Mosher tells OneNewsNow China, which controls population through forced abortion and sterilizations, acted as adviser to Peru.

"Not surprisingly, just as in China, in Peru we saw women arrested for the crime of resisting sterilization," Mosher reports. "We had stories of them being tied down and forcibly sterilized. We had women dying in unsafe sterilization procedures done in rural clinics that were less well equipped than the average veterinary clinic in the United States."

Some women were unknowingly sterilized when they had unrelated surgeries or during Caesarian deliveries of their babies. Some were also denied food and told their children would not receive needed vaccinations or medical care unless they submitted to the procedure.

Mosher, Steven (PRI)"We had population control workers in Peru given quotas, quotas to bring in at least two women for sterilization each month on pain of losing their jobs if they didn't," the researcher explains.

After more than 20 years of wrangling with the Peruvian government to right the wrong, a group of more than 2,000 women has filed suit to obtain justice. In addition, they will file human rights abuse charges against a former president and other government officials.
