As with many things, this is not simply a "black & white" issue.
I can understand the motivation behind it.
However I think that on balance, it will do more harm than good in the long run.

I know about this project in the USA, but did not realize it has now been set up here in the UK also, I just saw it debated on a tv show, and after seeing this, I am appalled by this "targeting" vulnerable people.
Reality is a Crack head would sell you their kidneys if they were desperate for their "hit". People do stop taking drugs/alcohol etc. and i'm worried about the long term effect that sterilization may have on ex-addicts who "took the cash" and now may regret it years down the line when they are in a stable, loving relationship and want to, but can't, have a family. I could see huge court cases in the future, as I don't think there is much worse than taking away a woman's natural ability to have children and keep the human race alive, especially when "tempted" by "cash" payouts! Vulnerable people are called vulnerable because they are easy to manipulate and take advantage of!
I know there are people who will say "what about the babies", but, from the great debate I have just seen, my view is this, Project Prevention are of the opinion that it's better not to be born at all, than to be born with "problems", well, nobody's perfect by far, and this statement makes me wonder whether they also think that disabled people should be dispatched also, as they too have big problems! This does not sit very well with me at all! It is a scheme where Addicts of one form or another are being exploited, and as it is now voluntary (perhaps a way of getting the main population learning to accept it, i.e. kids have been carrying ID cards for years now, so when they are young adults carrying i.d. cards won't be an issue!), is there a future agenda for compulsory sterilization of the society's "misfits, undesirables and people who won't tow the line". What next COMPULSORY STERILIZATION OF EVERYONE IN PRISON? I am appalled and don't want this in the UK, or in the planet for that matter!
Peoples lives and circumstances change daily, who is anyone to tell a VULNERABLE person to make a serious life changing decision for CASH, when "TOMORROW IS A NEW DAY!"
The junkies will go straight to their dealers, so that's where the money will go, why not do away with the cash and just offer the drugs/ alcohol, that way the dealers won't get any money, better still, just give the junkies LETHAL doses of drugs and be done away with them once and for all................ I'm joking, but I'm sure there are people who would agree with the above statement, unfortunately!
I'm all for this. If you want to screw up you life with dope, dont bring a baby into the mix. Selfish is one thing, thats another.
Better to not be born at all than with problems? DO YOU want to see a baby that is crack addicted because of a waste of flesh parent? Do you want to see a kid living on the street doing whatever it takes to "make it".
Your bleeding heart is NOT helping these dirtbags. They made a choice. Choices have consequences. They want to do dope? fine. Turn in your parent card on the way out. While the dope head is at it, turn in your health rights too. I shouldnt have to pay for their ailments.
BTW, My younger sister was hooked on all this crap. She lied, cheated, and stole. I didnt give her a damn bit of sympathy. Choices have consequences.

Hi, I think something's up with my web browser possibly, when I put quotations or links in, then i preview my post, the said quotations and links appear and work, yet when I post the link/ quotes, they don't seem to work or appear. This happened to me in another post earlier today also.
I'm using Firefox web browser, if that is of any relevance?
Thanks for your points, I'll try to find out what's going on.....

Actually you can tell a lot about and civilisation by the manner in which it treats its vulnerable people. I believe that this is a barbaric charity
In fact, many of our clients stopped using drugs because they became a parent."
