The payment of drug addicts to increase their sterilisation rate is morally unjustified and not simply 'A Fine Balance'

Morgan, Matt 2009. The payment of drug addicts to increase their sterilisation rate is morally unjustified and not simply 'A Fine Balance'. Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 24 (2) , pp. 119-123. 10.1080/01443610410001645361

Abstract

This paper argues that cash incentives offered to drug addicts in return for sterilisation are both legally and morally unacceptable. Such incentives act coercively, undermines one's freedom and autonomy and importantly invalidates real consent. This has important implications for any clinicians involved in such a scheme. The paper prompts more detailed studies into the use of incentives in modern-day health care.
