Prison medical staffers have been illegally sterilizing female inmates, according to a California state audit released yesterday.
At least 39 prisoners underwent surgeries where their informed consent was in question. Corey Johnson with the Center for Investigative Reporting first broke the story a year ago.
In that time, lawmakers have said that they're outraged about the findings from that report and the new audit. At least one has authored a bill to ban sterilization surgeries for inmates unless it's medically necessary.
Johnson joins Take Two to explain the details of the released audit and what reparations could be in store for those women already affected.
