I'm gonna take a step back from my initial reaction to the whistleblower case regarding mass hysterectomies at an ICE facility to write a brief thread of resources that I hope will be helpful to folks in understanding the scope of this issue. Please feel free to add to it. 1/n
If you haven't heard about the whistle blower case, here is a link to an article that includes the original complaint: lawandcrime.com/high-profile/l… 2/n
I can't emphasize enough that Medical Apartheid should be required reading at every training program that intersects with healthcare delivery and bioethics. Thank you to Dr. @lwillies for introducing me to it in medical school. 3/n penguinrandomhouse.com/books/185986/m…
If you want to learn about the history of the "Mississippi Appendectomy" from Harriet A. Washington (@haw95) herself, here's a powerful interview with her conducted by my friend @MaxJordan_N on the @FlipScriptPod podcast. 4/n soundcloud.com/yaleuniversity…
For a focused look at reproductive injustice in the US I recommend Killing the Black Body by Dorothy E. Roberts. I learned about it from Dr. @doczo1 while listening to her interview on the WokeWocDocs podcast by @bernielim, @StudentDocIvie and Nicole. 5/n penguinrandomhouse.com/books/155575/k…
If you want to learn about "Policing Black Reproduction" from Dr. @DorothyERoberts herself, here's another powerful interview conducted by @MaxJordan_N. 6/n soundcloud.com/yaleuniversity…
This next book, Medical Bondage by Deirdre Cooper Owens, is one I regretfully have yet to read. It was recommended to me by my friend and mentor Dr. @mclemoremr who I recommend you follow if you're interested in learning about reproductive justice. 7/n ugapress.org/book/978082035…
I invite y'all to add to this list so we can continue to learn together and be more vigilant against these atrocities.
