According to Fox News Latino, some clinics in Venezuela are having “sterilization days,” where women can come in and have the procedure done.
The clinic offers 40 slots during its so-called “sterilization day” offered regularly at a number of clinics in wealthier sections of the city, but as recently as last year, it did not come close to filling them. Now, however, all the slots are filled, and there is a waiting list of around 500 women hoping to get the procedure.
“Who wants to be pregnant right now in Venezuela?” Sonia Schott, the former Washington, D.C., correspondent for Venezuelan news network Globovisión, told Fox News Latino. “How can you be sure your child will have everything it needs? How do you know when you go to the hospital they’ll even have the proper medicine or equipment?”
