Check out #1. “#1. The Government Can Sterilize You in the Name of Eugenics”.
Hey guess what. The case they mention at the end of the article. 2012.
However, the ruling has never been overturned. Earlier this year, a Massachusetts judge ordered a pregnant schizophrenic woman to have an abortion and be sterilized to prevent the spread of her genes.

The poor woman appealed and the order was stopped, but the point is that in 2012, a ruling like this had to be appealed at all.

Y’all are kidding yourself if you think we don’t have reason to be worried.
