Tenn. Inmates Can Get a Vasectomy to Shorten Their Jail Sentences

ACLU calls the program 'unconstitutional'

Inmates in a Tennessee county can get time off their sentences for having a vasectomy or birth control implant, a policy that the American Civil Liberties Union calls "unconstitutional."

General Sessions Judge Sam Benningfield signed a standing order in May to give prisoners in the White County, Tenn. jail 30 days credit on their sentence if they undergo one of the procedures, NewsChannel 5 reports.

Women who participate are given Nexplanon birth control implant in their arm, which prevents pregnancy for up to four years. Men are given a vasectomy, also free, by the Tennessee Department of Health.

Geez, what a deal. My V cost me about $1000 out of pocket, BUT it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Double the deal and give a prostatectomy too. It'll only be trouble later.

I think the female version should be mandated after two out of wedlock children.

Would also be a good idea for all those lazy ones collecting any kind of government assistance.

Mine only cost me 5 bucks, but I had very good insurance back then. It would probably cost me thousands nowadays.

Why? Do you think a vasectomy would stop anyone from reoffending?

What on earth does having kids out of wedlock have to do with this?

But thanks and thanks to the others for commenting what I KNEW would be on here. A lot of people are so predictable.
