The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (“DREDF”) is horrified by reports of coerced hysterectomies being performed on women in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) custody. On September 14, 2020, Project South filed an administrative complaint on behalf of immigrants detained at a Georgia detention center. Among other allegations of medical neglect, inadequate protection against COVID-19, and hazardous living conditions, the complaint alleges that women in the facility have been sterilized in mass without proper consent or medical necessity. Numerous women described being coerced into surgery and confused as to why the procedure was performed. Some described being yelled at by medical staff when they resisted the procedure. Many explained that they felt as if ICE was “experimenting with [their] bodies.”, The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (“DREDF”) is horrified by reports of coerced hysterectomies being performed on women in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) custody.
