Permanent birth control, choice of 12 million Americans

Permanent birth control, choice of 12 million Americans

Avs News: 1-2

12 million U.S. citizens have chosen sterilization as a permanent contraception method during the past decade. The rate of female sterilization is slightly higher than that for male sterilization. Sterilization is safe, 100% effective, extremely low in complication rates and side effects, and can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. The AVS (Association for Voluntary Sterilization) records at least 145 sterilization clinics on its national roster. The AVS strongly opposes compulsory sterilization, and has promoted a competition for a manuscript based on survey research dealing with the topic of voluntary sterilization.
