In this talk, I will briefly trace the history of family and reproductive control in the US and highlight the role mass incarceration plays in this eugenic legacy. I will describe the forced sterilizations that occurred inside California prisons and contextualize the atrocity of those procedures within the larger landscape of reproductive oppression and abuse occurring daily in prisons and jails.
