As part of her complaint, filed on Monday, Ms Wooten expressed concerns about the high number of hysterectomies performed on Spanish-speaking women at the centre.

The nurse said detained women told her they did not fully understand why they had to get a hysterectomy - an operation involving the removal of all or part of the uterus.

The complaint also said that Ms Wooten and other nurses were alarmed by the "rate at which the hysterectomies have occurred" at the centre.

Ms Wooten alleged that one doctor removed the wrong ovary from a young detainee and that "everybody he sees has a hysterectomy".

"We've questioned among ourselves like, goodness he's taking everybody's stuff out…That's his speciality, he's the uterus collector," she said in the complaint.

If this is true, eugenics is happening right there in the USA. I do think more info needs to come out, like how was it happening ie. were they forcefully doing surgery on the women etc. If they were or if they were doing a different procedure than they said they were going to do, this is unconscionable and that doctor and anyone helping him/her should lose their medical licences.

I read that article in the Guardian and I too wanted more information.
