Paying Drug addicts to get sterilized or use long term BC?

http://www.projectprevention.org/objectives/

$300 for sterilization and I think $70 for an IUD given to drug addicted mothers.

End justifies the means?

I wouldn't mind the state paying for the procedure but I would not give them cash to get it.

I am not opposed as long as it is a choice and not enforced on someone, drug user or not it is still their body.

It's cash money given by a charity, not the state. However, I'm betting most of the procedures are paid for by the state and Federal governments, right?

If it is a choice, then fine.

I'm also fine with it as long as it is a choice. Personally...I think it should be offered to everyone not all insurances cover it.
