sterilizzazioni di massa tanto in voga fino a poco tempo fa da quelle parti?
Qualcosa tipo questo ?

The revelations in Sweden's largest newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, shocked
the world: long admired as a model of the enlightened and humane social
welfare state, Sweden had forcibly sterilized more than 60,000 people,
mostly women, between 1935 and 1976. The sterilizations were part of a
government program designed to weed out "social undesirables" in the
pursuit of a stronger, purer, more Nordic population. Those undesirables
included, as the paper put it in a subhead, "'mixed race individuals,'
single mothers with many children, deviants, Gypsies, and other
'vagabonds.'...has been exposing the underside of Sweden's welfare state
in Dagens Nyheter, a 380,000-circulation morning newspaper that is
Sweden's most influential voice. He has uncovered abuses in trusted
institutions: the State Marine Institute, the Ministry of Social
Affairs, and Sweden's celebrated judicial system. But this time he
challenged the utopian vision Swedes hold of themselves and their
government, and called into question a piece of their national identity.
More disturbing, Zaremba discovered that the sterilizations had never
been voluntary, as was believed in Sweden, and as they were portrayed on
paper. In the largest group of cases, adolescent girls who fit the
state's criteria had been removed from their parents' homes by state
officials and put in reform schools or institutions. Then, as a

And the state's criteria could be alarmingly arbitrary: people who fell
behind in school were labeled "stupid," people who were outgoing were
"sexually promiscuous," and people who were quiet or shy were deemed
"anti-social." All were grounds for sterilization. It was clear from the
files that sterilization had been forced upon vulnerable and often
Previous reports on the sterilization program, including a documentary
on Swedish Radio, had been largely ignored or dismissed. But in the
space of just two articles Zaremba managed to tear away years of myth
and secrecy, partly because of the power of his newspaper and partly due
to his writing and reporting.
Zaremba's articles set off a chain reaction of soul-searching by other
countries with a history of sterilization programs, including Austria,
Switzerland, Denmark, and Norway. In Sweden, the minister of health and
social affairs, Margot Wallstrom, whose agency just a year earlier had
refused to compensate several victims of sterilization, called the
sterilizations "barbaric" and promised to revisit the compensation
issue. Indeed, the government set up a commission to investigate the
sterilization program and decide if any victims should receive
