    But from what I've read of the practice it's usually done to women who are poor, on welfare and with their consent.

    I was reading a book about health care in america and there was a section on medicade and that these women have a difficult position.  They have medical care only when they're pregnant (with medicaid) but at the same time having a lot of children just takes them deeper into poverty.
