State Representative John LaBruzzo of Metairie said many of his constituents are tired of paying for children from poor families and that is why he is considering proposing legislation that would pay women on government assistance $1,000 if they choose to be sterilized. “You have these people who are just fed up with working their buns off to try to provide for their own family and being forced by the government o provide for others’ families who just want to have unlimited kids,” he said. LaBruzzo said he is studying voluntary sterilization for women whose sole financial support comes from the government in the form of welfare or other public assistance. His idea would be to give the women $1,000 if they had their tubes tied. His proposal has come under harsh criticism by some civil rights groups.
' considering proposing legislation that would pay women on government assistance $1,000 if they choose to be sterilized
in response to muzzleflash but you will do.
paid to be sterilized. how about $1000 to take the pill or current contraceptive not sterilization. the money would be tempting to a young poor female; however, will regret it later because it is in our nature to want children just like it is in a man's nature to procreate the species like dogs in heat. men.......two heads and not enough blood to operate both at the same time. let the government pay for the pill but sterilization no. why should women be offered a choice why not men. let the government offer men $1000 to have their balls cut off.
