Notprofit program to sterilize drugaddicts. Great idea in my book.

  1. Wow this sounds like a great idea, never even heard if this program.

    Drugs charities have condemned a £200 payment to a British drug addict for having a vasectomy as "exploitative" and morally and ethically dubious.

    The incentive payment, the first in the UK, was made to a 38-year-old opiates addict from Leicester, known as John, by a controversial US organisation targeting drug and alcohol abusers.

    Project Prevention, set up by Barbara Harris from North Carolina, has been compared by US critics to the Nazi eugenics programme. After paying more than 3,500 mainly female American addicts not to have children, it is now offering the service in the UK after a $20,000 (£12,500) donation from an anonymous US businessman living in Britain.
