REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS (PART 1)
The only portion of the British Empire which has officially adopted
permissive eugenical sterilization of the insane and feeble-minded
is the Province of Alberta… Alberta prefers to lead the followers
rather than to follow the leaders. To forestall any would-be wits,
permit me to say that 70% of Alberta’s insane are not natives of
this, the newest province in Confederation, but come from
countries outside of Canada…. Alberta’s accomplishment is only a
beginning… [The Sexual Sterilization Act of Alberta] attempt[s] at
salving the human wreckage which has been dumped from foreign
lands.
Emily Murphy (1932)
