Drug addicts offered money to be sterilised

18th October 2010

An American charity called Project Prevention has offered to pay drug addicts in the UK £200 to be sterilised.

Simon Antrobus, chief executive of Addaction, said while children should not be cared for by parents who used drugs, he did not approve of Project Prevention's plans for the UK. "It exploits very vulnerable people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol at probably the lowest point in their lives," he said.
