|Is it legal to sterilize anyone who doesn't want it?
No. Sterilization is legal for mentally competent, adult women and men in all 50 states only if it is voluntary. No mentally competent person can be forced to have the operation.
Somewhere...there is a site about a woman who had 8 c-sections. She tried vaginal for all. I think the oldest is in his/her teens, so it's pretty recent.

So what do they do when a woman comes in pregnant after 3 c/s? Tell her she's too high risk and she'll have to see a midwife? Then the midwife says she's too high risk, she'll have to deliver her own baby? I'm liking this parallel universe.
|The federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) requires hospitals to admit women in active labor and to abide by their treatment decisions until after the baby and placenta are delivered. The act was originally designed to prevent hospitals from “dumping” patients who couldn’t pay but has since been widely used to hold hospitals accountable for violating other patient rights, including the right to refuse treatment. If your hospital threatens to perform a cesarean despite your refusal, notify them that they are in violation of your rights under EMTALA and that you plan to file a complaint.|
|As a result of these rulings, both the AMA and ACOG have revised their ethical guidelines to state that court-ordered cesareans are rarely, if ever, justified, and are most definitely not justified in instances where the proposed treatment poses any risks to the mother.|
