Thousands of Latinos are afraid of COVID-19 as thousands of Latinos were sterilized in the 20th century amid the COVID-19 vaccine.
Consuelo Hermosillo’s 22-year-old granddaughter is afraid of getting the COVID-19 vaccine due to the rumour spread across the country that the people getting COVID-19 shot in preventing the women from getting pregnant and will not be able to get ever in life.
The trust was broken due to the rumour spread in thin air.
It was 30 years ago. Hermosillo, a migrant from Mexico, used to work at the catering business at home while his husband was working as a bartender. He used to unload the trucks at the nearby departmental store. In November 1973, she was 24 years old when she went to the hospital to give birth to her third child. The baby may be her last.
Hermosillo was sterilized without her consent at the southern California medical centre. “You must sign the documents, or either your baby dies,” she said, a nurse told her.
Her signature was scribbled on a form in which all the information was provided related to the procedure. She accuses the hospital of not remembering that she signed the papers; she also added in her statement that the hospital workers mediated her.
She did not realize she was sterilized until a doctor’s appointment later while she requested birth control. The Los Angeles county board of supervisors 2018 issued an apology for forced sterilizations. But the women did not get hold of reparation money as sufferers did in different states, including in Virginia and North Carolina.
“As a long way as justice, they by no means obtained that”, stated Virginia Espino, who completed the process of ladies testimonies as co-producer in a film called “no mas bebes”, which means no more baby’s.
