Boner Candidate #3: DID NO ONE THINK THIS WAS SOMEHOW WRONG?

California’s decades long eugenics program sterilized over 20,000 people, forcibly preventing them from having children between 1909 and 1979. The victims were disabled, people of color, or just poor. 88 year old Leonard Bisel recounts being forcibly sterilized at the age of 15 where he was threatened to be locked up and used for hard labor unless he submit. During the procedure, Mr. Bisel woke up and expressed his pain when the doctor simply told him to ‘shut up.’ None of the procedures required consent from patients, many of which were only 11.
