Israel has been trying to rid the country of African immigrants for months, and long ago began deporting African immigrants, but Haaretz is reporting that that’s not where it ends. According to the Israeli news outlet, Israel is making certain immigrants won’t be able to have children by sterilizing Ethiopian women:
It’s hard to believe, but in Israel, in 2012, Ethiopian women are forced to receive injections of the Depo-Provera contraceptive. This injection is not a commonly prescribed means of contraception. It is considered a last resort and is usually given to women who are institutionalized or developmentally disabled. Yet according to an investigation recently aired on the “Vacuum” documentary series hosted by Gal Gabay and shown on Israeli Educational Television, it is also given to many new immigrants from Ethiopia.
According to the documentary, 40 women have already received the shot.
