    I hate the title of this story. It makes out like she wanted to have more kids and was forced to stop.

    Yep. The headline screams “bogan mum, keeps popping out babies” when the reality is much worse.

    Also worth remembering where she lives, that level of poverty is pretty standard.

    But *they* also decided too sterilise her. Sounds like she didn't have a choice over that decision. She's been denied reproductive rights her whole life.
    Someone else got to decide for her when she had children, and then decide when she shouldn't. Makes me so angry, the whole story.

    Imagine the toll producing that many babies has taken on her body. I feel so sorry for her.

    this. raped from the age of 12, her body has grown and birthed 44 babies and then a male doctor decided to sterilize her. there are no words. she’s never had any control over her body or fertility her entire life. yes it’s heartbreaking and really angering.

    I read another article about this woman several months ago before mainstream news got hold of the story and twisted it. She very much wanted the procedure, she had been asking for it to be done after child number 20 or so.

    She asked to be sterilised. She had been asking doctors for ages. This article twisted the story.

    i recall reading the same article a while back too, the 38 kids and husband abandoning her sticks in my mind (how could it not really). i remember that article mentioned how she had asked for help to stop falling pregnant and they’d refused. it does seem as though this article has twisted the facts. although it’s easy to believe she was forced to be sterilized, she’s been forced to do things by a man her whole life, it fits that she was forced to be sterilized as well.
