Frost Over the World - Should drug addicts be sterilised?
Should drug addicts be paid to use birth control?
Drug addicts will be paid to use birth control by US charity Project Prevention to prevent unwanted pregnancies, but is this right?
A US non-profit organsiation, Project Prevention, is offering cash incentives to drug addicts who agree to take birth control. Critics, however, argue that this is just a short-term solution.
Project Prevention has paid26 British female drug addicts an initial payment of £60 to have the contraceptive implant or coil fitted.
Charity founder, Barbara Harris, who has adopted four children born to a crack addict in Los Angeles, believes that using long term contraceptive methods will help to prevent drug users having children they’re unable to care for.
‘I’ve spoken to many over the years and asked them why they don’t use birth control and they’ve told me that all they’re thinking about is getting high and how they’re going to do that,’ Harris told BBC Radio 5 Live.
Since it was founded in 1997, Project Prevention has paid money out to 3,242 addicts and now wants to help some of the 250,000 British children affected by parental drug abuse in the UK.
‘I have a whole file full of letters from women that we’ve paid saying ‘thank you for helping me do the first responsible thing I’ve done in my addiction’, said Mrs Harris.
