Forced sterilization of US citizens

Forced sterilization of US citizens

Next time you say the pledge of allegiance, ask yourself about the “and justice for all” part. Do we really have “justice for all” here in the USA, the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Between the 1920s and the 1970s, tens of thousands of people were sterilized with no due process of law. In a lot of cases, a social worker determined who was sterilized, and who was not. The victims had no opportunity to appeal the decision, no day in court, no due process, no nothing.

Where was their justice?

What I do not understand, how can these crimes against humanity be committed, and nobody is being held responsible.

Just because something is legal, does not justify the crime.

In the late 1930s and into the 1940s, it was legal in Germany to kill Jews. The soldiers were just following orders. The Nuremberg Trials set a legal precedent that just because something is legal, does not excuse the actions of those involved.

If the world brought Nazi war criminals to trail, why weren’t the people involved in the forced sterilization of US citizens brought to trial?

Maybe there is a double standard?  That its ok for the US government to commit crimes against humanity, just nobody else can?

We need a form of social justice

When the government refuses to protect the rights of the people, then the people need to step up and take care of business.

The people that preformed the forced sterilizations need to be found, and punished.

The social workers that determined who needed to be sterilized need to be found and punished.

The doctors and the nurses that preformed the operations need to be found and punished.

There has been a movement in several states to compensate victims of forced sterilization.  Compensation, no, punishment for those involved, yes.

The people that were involved need to be physically punished.  They need to be found, and prosecuted for crimes against humanity, but I doubt that will ever happen.  Government officials are rarely if ever held responsible for their actions.  As long as “its legal”, that is the only excuse they need.
