Controversial American charity, Project Prevention, is offering drug and alcohol addicts cash in hand if they agree to be sterilised. True, many of the addicts will just spend the money on more drugs or booze - but that doesn’t matter, if kids’ lives aren’t ruined by their parents’ habits, say those in charge of the scheme. Critics argue it’s social engineering, dictating who can and can’t raise a child. But if addicts can’t or won’t care for their babies, why shouldn’t we pay them not to get pregnant in the first place?
Should drug addicts be paid to get sterilised?
