Voluntary Sterilization A Viable Alternative?
To do something voluntarily is to undertake it of one’s own accord and by free choice, without being compelled or obligated to make that choice. In deciding to be sterilized, the individual must make that decision freely if it is to be considered voluntary. But since sterilization is something that is done to one, the individual must not only freely decide that he or she wishes it to be done, but also, in legal terms, give his or her consent that it be done.
