Amnesty urges Peru’s Humala to find forced sterilization victims

Human rights group Amnesty International pressed Peruvian President Ollanta Humala on Thursday to track down scores of poor Andean women who might have been forcibly sterilized by government doctors in the late 1990s. As a first step toward compensation, the group said Humala should create a list of potential victims of former President Alberto Fujimori’s controversial birth control program before he leaves office in a year. Amnesty International made the demand as it launched a global Against Her Will campaign to compensate victims of forced sterilizations.
