Birth control shots forced on Ethiopian women

Israeli government admits it had used birth control drugs without consent on some Ethiopian Jews.

    Ethiopian Jews in Israel are expressing outrage over revelations that the Israeli government gave some of them long-term birth control injections.

    This week the Israeli government admitted it had used the drug on some Ethiopian women without their consent.  

    Many of the women say they now feel the state has been controlling their fertility.
