This is happening NOW, in the present and not sometime in the past????
I know that in the 1970s in Los Angeles, there was an outcry as something like this was happening to Black and Hispanic women who were poor. When they'd go into General Hospital for whatever reason (seeking health treatment), they'd be made to sign papers and they didn't know what they were signing; these were women in poverty who were not literate enough to be able to read what they were signing and the paperwork was presented to them as if it were part of the check-in procedure. Turns out they were signing papers giving the hospital permission to sterilize them based on the assumption that illiterate, poor women of color should not be producing offspring they could not support financially and therefore continue the cylcle of poverty.
