    Default Drug addicts paid 200 to be sterlised

    Drug addict is paid for sterilisation - The Irish Times - Mon, Oct 18, 2010


    A drug addict has become the first man in Britain to take part in a controversial project that saw him get cash to be sterilised.

    The man (38), who wishes to be known to only as John, was given 200 in exchange for a vasectomy.

    The controversial American charity - Project Prevention - was set up by Barbara Harris, from North Carolina, who adopted four children born of a crack addict mother. She watched the children struggle with the addiction passed on to them by their mother.

    “I got very angry about the damage that these drugs do to these children,” she said on the programme.

    The project also pays addicts to get long-term birth control including intrauterine contraceptive devices or a contraceptive implant.

    The BBC London Inside Out investigation will air today at 7.30pm on BBC One.


    Should this be illegal?
