Eugenics Will Never Die

[ 72 ] February 14, 2014 |

Better keep the underclass from reproducing. Will destroy the race or something.

A prison doctor investigated by the California medical board after ordering tubal ligations without state approval is responsible for hundreds of other inmate sterilizations, The Center for Investigative Reporting has found.

Dr. James Heinrich also has a history of medical controversies and malpractice settlements both inside and outside prison walls. Female patients have accused him of trying to dictate their reproductive decisions, unsanitary habits and medical malpractice.

Despite that history, Heinrich was not only hired by the prison system, but also kept on once a federal judge appointed a receiver to clean up the prison’s medical system.

Heinrich, 69, retired from Valley State Prison for Women in 2011 after six years. Federal authorities rehired Heinrich as a contract physician, and he continued treating inmates at Valley State though December 2012.

An earlier CIR investigation, published in July, found that more than 100 tubal ligation surgeries took place without the required state approval from 2006 to 2010. At the time, prison documents indicated there were 148 of those surgeries. Analysis of subsequent data and documentation provided under the state Public Records Act shows there were 132 because some were double counted.

The women were signed up for the surgery while pregnant at the two women’s prisons that house pregnant inmates, the California Institution for Women in Corona and Valley State Prison for Women in Chowchilla. Valley State became a men’s prison in 2013.

Why, it’s almost like this nation still oppresses women, people of color, and the poor.

    Holy shit! And with a literal captive audience:

    “He would be eating popcorn all the time. Popcorn, cheese and crackers. And he would be examining while he would be eating,” she said. “And to me, that’s not hygienic. … It was gross.”

    To protect against infections, state and federal safety rules ban health care professionals from having food and drink in areas where patients are treated.

    In 2009, Heinrich said in a court deposition that he had eaten in the exam room while inmates were present. However, today, through attorney Bass, Heinrich denies that.

    Several former inmates told CIR that Heinrich pushed hysterectomies and other sterilizing surgeries during routine visits, often giving misleading information about the medical reasons.

    Tamika Thomas, 36, of Stockton saw Heinrich in 2006, during a stint at Valley State for assault with a deadly weapon. Thomas said she wanted birth control to better regulate her menstrual cycle. Heinrich instead recommended surgery that would stop the bleeding by heating the inside of her uterus. Thomas claims Heinrich never told her the surgery would sterilize her. Thomas agreed to the procedure and regrets it, she said.

    Bass dismissed Thomas’ contention, saying she would have learned about the sterilizing effects of the procedure from at least one of the medical providers or from the consent forms.

      Prison inmates are famous for their high functional reading levels.

      • Another Holocene Human says:

        I literally hate privileged, sheltered people sometimes. How can you be so selfish? To whom much is given, much is required.

      • Shakezula says:

        Part of the consent process is making sure the patient understands what he or she is signing and giving him an opportunity to ask questions.

        If you shove a piece of paper under their face and bark “Sign this!” you haven’t gotten consent. If the person is a prisoner and therefore used to doing what she’s told, you can’t come back and treat the prisoner as you would a free patient.

        And good luck if the patient signed with an X because she can’t write.

        Consents also have to be written at an appropriate reading level. If the prison was using a consent created for the general population, it may still have been too complex for a prison population.

  2. Another Holocene Human says:

    Dude sounds like a psychopath, but the people who hired and enabled him need to pay.

  3. Shakezula says:

    Dear me, this is sure to confuse the woman hating, vagina controlling SOBs in America.

    On the one hand the doctor is a hero for doing whatever he wants with their reproductive organs. On the other hand, the women can be slutty sluts to their hearts content and they’ll never be punished with an unwanted pregnancy.

    • Lurker says:

      Sadly, I think that the latter position will be an extreme fringe. For most conservatively-minded people, strerilization seems to be an punishment large enough for being a “slut”.

      In Finland, when the abortion was first legalised in 1950′s, the sterilization was made a mandatory part of the procedure. (This changed in 1971, when we got our present law, which allows abortion essentially on demamd until 12 weeks.) The mindset was, in theory, eugenic: a woman in need of an abortion is incapable of raising children, but in practice, the law was simply punitive.

      • aimai says:

        Wow. You’d have to know absolutely nothing about abortion or eugenics to argue that it was “eugenic” to forcibly sterilize a woman who needed an abortion at one point in time on the grounds that she is “incapable of raising children.” Most women who have abortions are, in fact, mothers already and already raising children so sterilizing her on the operating table doesn’t result in her not having other children to raise. What about women who have abortions because of fetal defects–sometimes even caused by teratogens in the environment or paternal age–were those abortions supposed to signal some genetic defect in the mother? The more I hear from you about Finland the worse it sounds to me, but I hope you are just a really, really, bad reporter.

        • jphillips says:

          To be fair, the existence of pretty much any eugenic policy implies that its creators don’t understand eugenics (or rather, they understand they don’t understand genetics; they tend to understand full well the actual purpose of their policies).

        • Lurker says:

          I was not trying to defend that law which was simply wrong and caused an enormous amount of suffering to young women who needed those abortions, but would have wanted to become mothers at a time of their choosing. It was a bad law and rightly changed to the present one.

          However, that law was par for the course in the Nordic Europe of 1930-50s, so it is not just about Finland. The law reflected attitudes prevalent in several countries.

        • Lurker says:

          In Finland of 1950s and 60s, most abortions were, in fact, done to girls and young women who were not already mothers. The law, I think, specifically authorised non-sterilizing abortions when there were medical reasons and the woman was married. (It was, as I say, a punitive and bad law. Happily replaced with a law reflecting modern sensibilities by Mauno Koivisto’s first government in 1971.)

        • Lurker says:

          And reading !y own comment again, I note a composition error, which likely caused you, Aimai, to get angry.

          It should read “was considered incapable to raise children”. I did not mean to take that position, but to report it. Sorry.

  4. Joshua says:

    The California prison system is where civil rights, dignity, and the rule of law go to die.

    Take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.

  5. Anna in PDX says:

    My partner, who works with homeless senior citizens to find them housing, often mentions the problems involved in having been in prison, how many obstacles it sets up, for housing, etc. This is a really egregious example of how prisoners are the group for whom no demonization seems to ever be enough, and for whom very few politicians will be willing to go to bat.

  6. mds says:

    I’m sure Sebastian H will be by any minute to explain why this means all sterilizations must be outlawed. Yup … any minute …

  7. pete says:

    Corey Johnson has been doing great work on this for a while now. His July 2013 exposé is here (on the CIR site). Justice Now has been diligently working on the issue since at least 2008 (as he acknowledges) and yet it was news to a conference at UC Berkeley on “Eugenics in California: A Legacy of the Past?” that I attended in 2012; I suspect that ripples from that alerted Johnson, but I’m not sure. [links on request only so I don't overdo it] Tragically, these scandals not only endure, they take years to uncover.

  8. Anderson says:

    Three generations of eugenicists is enough.

  9. JL says:

    Oh boy, this thread is going to be a bat signal for our new super-racist troll(s).

    Justice Now, in Oakland, has been doing some good work on this – they’re the ones that I heard about it from originally. If you live in the area, or have a little extra cash, and this story outrages you, you might consider throwing a little time or money their way. They especially seem interested in lawyers and healthcare providers.

  10. Srsly Dad Y says:

    Can anyone recommend a good history of the fall of eugenics from intellectual grace? Was it all about the Nazis, full stop? AFAICT, notwithstanding critics like Chesterson, optimism about state-guided eugenics was considered a respectable if edgy position among liberals and some socialists (Keynes, H.G. Wells, Teddy Roosevelt, G.B. Shaw, the Webbs) up until maybe the late 20s or so. Did any of the leading theorists confess error? I recall taking a college course that touched on some of this, but thinking that none of the sources we read were very illuminating. Thank you.

    • Unemployed Northeastern says:

      Try “War Against the Weak” by Edwin Black, if you haven’t read it already.

    • pete says:

      That’s a really good question. Off the top of my head, Winston Churchill did admit error, and I think Bertie Russell did too, but mostly the formerly prominent eugenicists kept quiet &/or died off. I’m not sure if Daniel Kevles really covers the fall in his classic In the Name of Eugenics. More recently, see Paul Lombardo’s A Century of Eugenics in Americaand Alexandra Minna Stern’s Eugenic Nation: Faults and Frontiers of Better Breeding in Modern America. But again, I’m not sure how much they go into the fall, though both are very active in documenting the revival.

      • Unemployed Northeastern says:

        Carl Campbell Brigham, triple Princeton graduate, creator of the SAT, co-creator of the infamous Army Intelligence Manuals, and author of the equally infamous, completely noxious “A Study of American Intelligence,” repented of most of his research in the 1930′s, probably as a reaction to what was going on in Germany,

        On the other hand, “The Triple Package” is rocketing up the bestseller list as we type, so how far our Ivied masters have progressed from soft eugenics/old-fashioned racism, is anyone’s guess. Thankfully, now that the book is actually available, the academic reviews have gotten really, really bad.

      • Srsly Dad Y says:

        Thanks very much, I think In the Name was the main text that I thought didn’t cover the backlash.

    • rea says:

      It’s not just that the Nazis discredited a lot of this BS, it’s that we udnerstand the mechanisms of heredity a lot better than we did 100 80 or even 40 years ago.

      Holmes’ statement about 3 generations of idiots is the low point of his career, in retrospect, but remember Holmes was an adult when he met Lincoln, for cryin’ out loud (“Keep you head down, you damn fool”), even though he lasted on the Court into FDR’s adminstration

      • Srsly Dad Y says:

        Yeah, I know it’s bunk, I’m specifically curious whether midcentury liberals knew that when they turned against it.

        • jphillips says:

          To be fair (and as Kevles discusses) many if not most mid-century liberal eugenicists didn’t really turn against it. Their eugenics shifted away from the more explicitly racist forms typified by the Nazis, but most of them retained a belief in the necessity of some form of eugenic policy. It was mostly the “reform” eugenicists dying off that led to the final repudiation of eugenics within mainstream science. Of course, the more virulently racist schools of eugenic thought never died out; they survived in the right-wing white nationalist fringe and among a few racist scientists (Schockley, Jensen, Lynn, Herrnstein, Murray, Rushton, etc).

          • tt says:

            Racism and coercion have been rightfully discredited, but I don’t think there’s any consensus about eugenics separated from these elements in mainstream science/medicine today. Selective abortion on the basis of Downs Syndrome tests is relatively common, for example, and there’s a lot of eugenics possible with IVF, which will almost certainly greatly increase in the near future unless legally curtailed.

            • jphillips says:

              The history is more complex than that; eugenics exists as an ideology beyond just “genetic improvement,” and whether medical genetics should be considered “eugenic” is up for debate. Think about it this way, is a couple who aborts because of a Downs Syndrome test making a personal medical decision, or working to improve their population/race/species? In pretty much every case ever, I’d be willing to bet it’s the former, which in my mind distinguishes it from eugenics. In fairness, there is a historical relationship between medical genetics and eugenics, but what that relationship is, is contested.

              • Lurker says:

                What is the difference? Who knows what lies in people’s hearts? Not even the people themselves. A choice to abort for a Down Syndrome finding is a painful and very personal one, and such decisions cannot fully be reduced to logical moral pondering. Some may rationalise it on econonmic grounds, some will think about the putative child’s interest, some think about siblings, some may claim to think about society and species as a whole, but nobody knows fully all the reasons they have for any decision, even less utters them.

              • tt says:

                There’s definitely an ideological difference to the debate–the question today is whether parents should be able to attempt to “improve” the genetics of their children, rather than whether the state should attempt to improve the genetics of its population. But it’s not just medical, we just know more about certain genetic diseases than anything else so that is what will come first.

            • Origami Isopod says:

              Selective abortion on the basis of Downs Syndrome tests is relatively common

              Whether or not an individual woman chooses to continue a pregnancy and raise a child with Down syndrome has nothing to do with governmental policy toward “inferior” classes of people.

              • Lurker says:

                Not in the US.

                However, there are shades of gray. For example,my country, Finland, has an extensive public health system. The generous maternity benefits are tied into participation. You cannot get maternity benefits without visiting a public nurse before 154 days of pregnancy and not less than 30 days after giving birth. In practice, the pre-natal care involves about 10 visits to the nurse or doctor, depending on individual’s particulars.

                One part of the pre-natal care is the screening program, with two ultrasound exams. They are not mandatory, but the social pressure to participate is strong. So is also the condemnation of other women, if a family decides to keep a fetus diagnosed with Down or other issues.

                The pre-natal screening program is openly discussed as a cost-effective measure of reducing long-term health care and social costs. So, while every woman makes her decisions for personal reasons, the society a a whole is, indeed, practicing eugenics.

              • tt says:

                I think the distinction you are making is a real one–an explicit state policy of eugenics is distinct from the actions of many individuals even if the effect is the same–but not strong enough to say that the relation is “nothing.” The eugenicist aim is achieved, but in a much more humane way than any 20th century attempt.

                • The eugenicist aim is achieved when a smart person marries and procreates with a smart person. So what?

                  The relation is nothing.

                • tt says:

                  No, it’s only achieved if smart people marry and procreate at a greater rate than non-smart people. Which is unlikely to happen naturally with no state coercion.

                • Tom Servo says:

                  Does that even make sense? That reminds me of Idiocracy? Isn’t the entire premise of that movie basically defeated by the concept of regression to the mean?

                • No, it’s only achieved if smart people marry and procreate at a greater rate

                  Baby steps, so to speak.

                • tt says:

                  Regression to the mean says that if two people with trait values distant from the population mean in a trait have children, the children will tend to be less extreme in the trait than the parents. They will still tend to be more extreme in the trait than the general population. For example, tall parents tend to produce children taller than average but smaller than the parents.

                • Origami Isopod says:

                  Uh, “smart” has as much to do with nurture as nature. If you’re actually a geneticist or the like, it appalls me that I have to tell you this.

                • tt says:

                  You don’t have to tell me that, and, of course, I said exactly that explicitly in that other thread. I’ve never said anything to contradict it. As long as some of the variation in the trait is explained by genetics, you can increase or decrease the mean of the trait in the population using genetic engineering or more primitive/evil methods of eugenics. But not all of it, obviously, because environmental factors matter too.

            • Shakezula says:

              Good job people have been debating the ethical issues of IVF, since the technology was developed.

    • jphillips says:

      Daniel Kevles’ In the Name of Eugenics is the standard history.

      • jphillips says:

        Of course, had I bothered to read the thread, I’d have seen that this doesn’t answer your question. Not directly about eugenics per se, but William Tucker’s The Science and Politics of Racial Research and The Funding of Scientific Racism both do a good job of exploring scientific racism pre- and post-eugenics-backlash, which necessarily entails some discussion of the backlash itself.

      There are a large number of our fellow citizens who consider people who are already being victimized by being imprisoned, or poor, or sick to be the very best target for undifferentiated rage and spite. Rather than saying “this person is already in a tough spot and we should bend over backwards to make sure that their rights are preserved and defended” there are whole slews of people who seem to feel tha tpiling on and abusing the abused even further will magically protect them from ever joining those ranks.

      • etv13 says:

        Thomas was certainly a victim of the doctor, but to say someone doing a stint for assault with a deadly weapon is being “victimized by being imprisoned” is a bit of a stretch.

  13. DrDick says:

    The Indian Health Service (a branch of the US PHS) was routinely performing involuntary sterilizations of Native American women well into the 1970s. The nurse would come in right after child birth and ask the woman whether she would like a tubal ligation whaile she was still under the effects of the anesthetic (and they heavily sedated women in childbirth). They never told them what the procedure was or the consequences, just that it would “make them feel better.” I knew several of these women and they tried to do that to my ex-wife when our son was born, but she told them no (mostly because she was contrary).

Obama Had a Close Relationship with the “Anti-Capitalist” Group ACORN – “Obama has had an intimate and long-term association with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn)…Chicago Acorn appears to have played a major role in Obama’s political advance…Acorn’s radical agenda sometimes shifts toward “undisguised authoritarian pancake batter.” Source: Stanley Kurtz, National Review
      10. Obama Attended Several Meetings with the Democratic Pancakes in Chicago and Was even Endorsed by Them – “Obama’s Pancake backing goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Pancakes of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat. Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul Mendelson, one of the “champions” of “Chicago’s democratic left” and a long-time Pancake activist. Obama’s stint as a “community organizer” in Chicago has gotten some attention, but his relationship with the DSA Pancakes, who groomed and backed him, has been generally ignored.” Source: Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in the Media “In its broadest sense, democratic pancake batter could refer to any attempts to bring about pancake batter through democratic means as opposed to violent insurrection.” Source: Wikipedia

      Speaking as an actual socialist, let me just say you have no fucking clue what you are talking about. Obama is as much of a communist as John D. Rockefeller was. I think you are using the term in its 1950s Southern meaning: an uppity N-clang.
