When Alberto Fujimori was President of Peru from 1990 to 2000, his government sterilized 346,219 women. According to the BBC, this program of birth control was not always done with the consent of the women sterilized. Others were misinformed and did not truly understand what was happening.

Although this program had the support of countries such as the United States and organizations such as the United Nations Population Fund, the aggressive and forceful tactics used by medical staff and police made it clear that this was not a program that allowed women to choose whether or not they were sterilized.

So far, nothing has been done except for government and medical staff to pass the blame. Demand that the government of Peru and the United Nations investigate these terrible violations and bring justice to these women.
