Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Four advocacy groups in Georgia file a whistleblower complaint with the Office of the Inspector General alleging that female detainees have been exposed to forced hysterectomies at one of the Trump Administration’s detention centers.

The disgusting, immoral, and illegal practice is not new. In the 1960s and ’70s, Native American woman, Black women, disabled women, and poor women were given sterilization operations by the Department of Health & Human Services without their knowledge or consent.

Multiple women came forward to tell Project South about what they perceived to be the inordinate rate at which women in ICDC were subjected to hysterectomies – a surgical operation in which all or part of the uterus is removed. Additionally, many of the immigrant women who underwent the procedure were reportedly “confused” when asked to explain why they had the surgery, with one detainee likening their treatment to prisoners in concentration camps.

“Recently, a detained immigrant told Project South that she talked to five different women detained at ICDC between October and December 2019 who had a hysterectomy done,” the complaint stated. “When she talked to them about the surgery, the women ‘reacted confused when explaining why they had one done.’ The woman told Project South that it was as though the women were ‘trying to tell themselves it’s going to be OK.’”

“When I met all these women who had had surgeries, I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp. It was like they’re experimenting with our bodies,” the detainee said.
