Eugenics:Barbara Harris Of Project Prevention Offers Addicts $300 To Get Sterilized

•, Mary Plummer
 Barbara Harris, the founder and head of Project Prevention, shrugs off the criticism of her group, which has paid 3,600 American drug addicts $300 each to get sterilized or undergo other long-term birth control procedures.

“I really don’t understand controversy or people who oppose what we do,” Harris said. “I think a lot of people should realize they’re never going to be good parents, and never have children.”

“If I had enough money, there wouldn’t be any pregnancies for drug addicts,” she said.

So far, the program has had a modest start in Britain. Harris paid a Leicester man £200, about $314, to have a vasectomy in September. The man, identified only as John, told the BBC the money influenced his decision to undergo the procedure.

“It was something that I’d been thinking about for a long time, and something I wanted to do. I just hadn’t got around to it,” he said.
