1. Stop the sterilization of women in Uzbekistan

On 1999 in Uzbekistan started the program to reduce the number of people by sterilizing women. Usually women, which already have children were damaged during the next birth. Sterilization changes physiology of body, also character, attractiveness and healthiness of women. In some cases husbands left them because of this. The changed psychology of mother because of the sterilization influence the children she grow.

In 2003 the program was closed. In 2010 February Uzbekistan government renewed it again.

P.s.
Please write me if you know more such cases or you know that the media below provides the misinformation.
