Peru Forced Sterilization

Peru Forced Sterilization

In this photo taken on Nov. 22, 2011, Aurelia Paccohuanca talks during an interview in Lima, Peru. Paccohuanca, who heads the Association of Women Affected by Forced Sterilization in Cuzco, says she was among the victims of forced sterilization 15 years ago shortly after the birth of her fourth child. More than 2,000 women have issued formal complaints about being forcibly sterilized under a program created by then-President Alberto Fujimori to dramatically lower Peru's birth rate.
