This paper presents a case study of Leilani Muir who learned during her twenties that she could never have children. She was unable to have children because six years earlier, in 1959, she had been sterilized under an Alberta government Act that qualified her for sterilization when she was admitted to a provincial training school for mental defectives. The paper explains that at the same time that Muir was sterilized, other mentally disabled women and men also endured other research procedures concerned with reproduction. The paper then goes on to argue that the sterilization and confinement that Muir suffered is clearly immoral and were an infringement of her civil rights.
