Peru: Alberto Fujimori has sterilized more than 300,000 Peruvian Women in 5 years!

The Committee of Latin America and the Caribbean for the Defense of Women's Rights (CLADEM) filed a complaint with the Inter-American Court of Human Rights against the policy of forced sterilization of Alberto Fujimori between 1995 and 2000.
In the 1990s, under President Alberto Fujimori, an anti-birth policy has led to the forced sterilization of more than 300,000 Peruvian women of just over 12 million of Peruvian women.
They are exactly 331,600 farmers in the Peruvian Andes or senoras the slums of Lima have been forcibly sterilized between 1990 and 2000 that is to say during the presidency of Alberto Fujimori. This figure was published in a "final report" of the Ministry of Health in 2002.

Between 1995 and 2000, as part of a "Plan for Public Health" doctors and civil servants were sent to rural Peru with the objective of reducing the number of births. In exchange, they promised money or rice, but did not explain their "patients" that they could no longer bear children.
Some women had free medical consultations, dental care, and even sessions and leave in hair ... sterile. Mostly illiterate, these women had, unbeknownst to them, signed a release allowing doctors to perform their tubal ligation.
Result: many husbands left their home, rejecting a wife become sterile.
Alejandro Aguinaga, the health minister at the time, admits that "mistakes" were made, but refuses to acknowledge that this was a deliberate policy. Behind that forced sterilization was hiding a shameful political objective: "Destroy the areas supporting the people's war led by the Communist Party of Peru."
In fact this policy was an outrageous response to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), who considered it essential to reduce the birth rate in Peru.
Determined to reduce the force of poverty in Peru, Alberto Fujimori, who launched into a political antinatalist with the help of the United Nations and many aid groups.
In twenty years, only one family was compensated when they were around 2,000 to have complained.

  1. Yes, I saw first hand some of the victims of this treatment. They were nearly all from indigenous communties - the most undesired people in Peruvian civil society.
    The policy was racially-motivated therefore. It is a subtle genocide. I hope it has stopped now, but I doubt it.
    Peru has a latent fear that the indigenous population could one day form a majority in the country. They nearly do. That could threaten the balance of power and the european/asian/mestizo elite are concerned.
    Reasons of poverty reduction make no sense. People are the wealth of a nation. Peru is a huge county with less than 30 million. Almost empty!!
