NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexus Caridades Attorneys Inc. announced comprehensive civil action against White County, White County Judge, Sam Benningfield, White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe, and White County personnel involved in the resurgence of eugenics in our country.
The lawsuit states, "Simply put, in 2017, our country has come too far with respect to promoting the inherent worth and dignity of people (incarcerated or otherwise), to go this far backwards." The lawsuit further points out "White County Jail inmates, including Ms. Ward, had Nexplanon injected into their arms in exchange for a promised 30-day jail time reduction prior to Judge Benningfield's order," therefore, "In his capacity as Sheriff, Shoupe, was the final policy maker for White County with respect to all health programs in which White County Jail inmates participated."
Mike Donovan, Civil Rights Advocate, and President and CEO of Nexus Services, Inc. stated during the press conference, "This is not about sentence reduction. It's not about family planning. It is about who Sheriff Shoupe considers undesirable to procreate in White County." Donovan added, "That the sheriff and the judge are playing God.
Attorney, Mario Williams, Chief of the Nexus Caridades, Inc. Civil Rights Division also addressed the media imploring: "The number one question we should ask, is a Constitutional Right. The law already says that Americans shall be free from coercion about making decisions about reproductive rights and procreation."
Prior to a judge's order, the lawsuit states," [Sheriff] Shoupe ordered his subordinate Daniels to take Ms. Ward and each person that completed the Department of Health Neonatal Syndrome Education (NAS) Program to the White County Jail Infirmary so that Ms. Ward and others could be sterilized by officials from the Tennessee Department of Health."
