Israel admits it. Israel made Ethiopian Jewish immigrants get birth control shots without their consent . Eliahu-Chai an investigating journalist, found the story to be true and the women had no knowledge of the action of the injection nor that it was a hormone aimed at controlling the birth of more children from Ethiopian Jewish immigrants.

In The Haaretz Report the Health Minister General Prof. Ron Gamzu says he told health officials not to give the women long-acting contraceptive Depo-Provera if they did not understand the ramifications of the injection. The hormone is injected every three months to prevent ovulation and therefore pregnancy. Eliahu-Chai sent a letter demanding the injections be stopped and an investigation would ensue.
During the interviews the women told Eliahu-Chai they were intimidated and threatened
The women enroute to Ethiopia said they were told they were receiving inoculations, they were told women who have many births are the ones to suffer and the shot would need to be given to them every three months.

The program has been reported and ignored before now. Shocking reports show that over 60% of the birth control injections are given to Ethiopian Jewish by the Israeli government. In the past ten years there has been a 50% decline in the Ethiopian Jewish population.
Hedva Eyal, head of the Women and Technologies Project told the LA Times,”the decision whether to have children or not, and her fertility is up to the woman alone. For that alone they should have full access to factual information and that doesn’t seem to be the case here.”
