India women die after sterilisations

India women die after sterilisations http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-29999874

If you want to control population, shouldn’t the MEN be sterilized?
Seriously, how many children can any woman produce in a year? And men?
And who it’s the more violent, and Forcer of unwanted “advances”.
The whole thing I’d turned on is head.
Who’s making the laws (vs who are they bring applied to?)
Also, I suspect there would be more attention to the care if the patients were male. Women are so expendable to many. Also, there are always double standards at play for women.
There is more accountability for keeping the MEN alive. And men sterilizations have a better success of reversal, should circumstances change.
Finally, the poor motive for these (male) doctors is quick cash. These make doctors clearly have no regard for women in the least.

Poor situation all around!

Last couple sentences of the article are the most revealing. Activism and new solutions are needed. But this does become part of the conversation. And conversation is one step.
