First drug addict sterilised under 'cash for vasectomy' offer
"The man, known as John, who has been addicted to heroin for 15 years, was given £200 by an American charity in return for having a vasectomy.
"Project Prevention, the charity running the scheme, has made similar payments to thousands of men and women in America in a crusade to prevent them having children who may inherit their addictions.
"The 38-year-old man said he had been involved with drugs since the age of 11 or 12 and that the offer of money had "spurred" him into having the operation."
