Maru Mora-Villalpando, immigrant rights activist and organizer; and Carlos Castaneda, Board certified specialist in immigration law in San Antonio, Texas, discuss allegations of unnecessary hysterectomies being performed on immigrant women in ICE detention. The complaint noted that whistleblower Dawn Wooten said she witnessed a surprising number of women in the center getting hysterectomies - sometimes without understanding why or knowing what they’d supposedly consented to. AP was able to confirm 8 or 9 procedures done by Dr. Mahendra Amin, who is at the center of these allegations, and at least one hysterectomy, and their investigations shows that while some of the procedures seem to be medically justified, the facility doesn’t seem to have bothered to get informed consent from the women it sent for treatment.
