    this is a ridiculous article. In fact Depo Provera is one of the most widely used contraceptives worldwide to this day and is considered safe for healthy women. Hundreds and thousands of woman use it regularly. The effects of Depo Provera last approximately 3 months on the body- not sterilization. A woman who experiences side effects or who does not wish to continue the contraceptive for other reasons, simply will decide not to get another injection. It is standard procedure to offer contraception- whether pills, injections, condoms, or other methods- to women leaving the hospital after giving birth and Ethiopian women are no less entitled to the standard of care that other women receive. Haaretz you should not have people with zero medical knowledge writing articles about things they know nothing about. The only thing I can think of is that possible misunderstandings occurred due to language barriers, which of course is a hospitals responsiblity to have qualified interpreters available.
