Is it true that Israel forces Ethiopian immigrents onto birth control to limit their population?
Is it why in order to quell the controversy they have allowed an Ethiopian to win the Miss Israel title.
Not sterilized, but given long lasting birth control without consent, or without clear consent.
Here's an article from Israeli newspaper Haaretz:
"A government official has for the first time acknowledged the practice of injecting women of Ethiopian origin with the long-acting contraceptive Depo-Provera.
Health Ministry Director General Prof. Roni Gamzu has instructed the four health maintenance organizations to stop the practice as a matter of course.
The ministry and other state agencies had previously denied knowledge or responsibility for the practice, which was first reported five years ago."

As for why an Ethiopian won Miss Israel, maybe the judges wanted to make a statement that they did not support the racist ideal of beauty you see in a lot of beauty contests etc. . . . and maybe this scandal had something to do with their wanting to make that statement!
Yes, health officials are administrating contraceptives to Ethiopian Jews.
This is another example of why I do not believe in a god. (oh, stop god bashing mintinfo) I hear your thoughts (sigh). In my defense I try my best to operate by logic but this is beyond logic. Even when I reference the old testiment it is beyond rationalle. So the Jews claim to be the first chosen of god and god gives them the right to make choices when it comes to protecting their race. In the past they have exterminated other cultures (because god told them so). Why then did they let the Ethiopean (so called) Jews into Israel? Is it god that told them that (these people are imposters so you can do with them what you will). How long will they get away with crying victim and how long will they use it as an excuse to practice discrimination against the Palestinians and now the Ethiopeans. Surely this is not godly if they claim to be a people of god. Maybe they know that the god concept that they created is just a lie but it has worked so well that most people will be blind to the atrocities that they perpetuate. The dark universe is not sleeping.
Goodness, if this is true, as other commentes have indicated it is a sad state of affairs.

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?

How many children would the average woman have in her lifetime if she did not use birth control?Assuming she was conceiving naturally. What do you think?

Should we put a cap on how many children per family is allowed?This could be decided by earnings, or perhaps religion political views maybe.

I am pro-life. I am so adamant about seeing the number of abortions decrease that I am in favor of providing contraception to minors without parental consent. I could actually work side by side with a pro-choice person on this point. I may not agree with this person on anything...

Where in the Constitution is a women's right to birth control?In The United States of America our Rights are enumerated within the Bill of Rights and to my understanding such a Right does not exist.

I take birth control pills for medical reasons. I have PCOS. Without it, my hormones would be imbalanced and I'd be at risk for uterine cancer. There are many women like me. I find it disturbing that those who oppose covering birth control don't know this and equally appalled that those...
