Dear Director Samuels,
Valley State Prison doctor James Heinrich was responsible for over 100 sterilizations of inmates without state approval, and has been claimed to have tried to pressure female inmates into sterilization through outright lies. The United States has a chilling history of sterilization, and the fact Heinrich was able to carry out so many unapproved operations, and was hired on despite his record of malpractice and medical controversy, is indicative of a very serious oversight by the justice department. Heinrich was also known for ignoring hygiene measures, yet was never disciplined for malpractice.
There must be a nationwide effort to clean up the prison medical system, perhaps especially concerning medical abuse of inmates. I ask that the Justice Department take action to prevent similar abuses from happening and review prisons on a much more intensive scale.
Heinrich must also be penalized for his conduct. This cannot be allowed to happen again, especially in light of the United States’ history of forced sterilizations, and inmates must be protected from medical abuse and malpractice.
