According to reports, Israel's health ministry launched an investigation over claims made by Ethiopian women living in the country who protested in Jerusalem that they were being injected with Depo-Provera "vaccines" for many years, leaving them barren.
Without their knowledge or consent, Israel was, and maybe still is, jabbing black women with Depo-Provera at three-month intervals at local Israeli clinics. Depo-Provera, in case you are unfamiliar with the drug, stops menstruation and has been linked to fertility problems and osteoporosis.
At the time, Yaakov Litzman, Israel's deputy minister of health, was tasked with leading the so-called investigation. Prior to this, Litzman had already declared that the Depo-Provera conspiracy was just that: a conspiracy without merit.

The issue came to light after social workers noticed that the birth rate among Ethiopian women living in Israel had halved in a decade. An entire documentary ended up being produced about the scandal, which prompted massive public outcry.
What the film showed is that immigrant women from Ethiopia who were still in transit between the two countries at the time were being jabbed with contraceptives. By the time they arrived in Israel, these women were already sterile and unable to reproduce.
Many of these same women continued to get jabbed by Israeli doctors after their arrival. A sizeable number of these physicians unquestioningly did the deed, raising questions about who instigated the policy in the first place.
Both Israel and Ethiopia denied any involvement in the practice, which Sava Reuben, an Ethiopian who has lived in Israel since 1984, said at the time was still taking place, despite the two countries' denial of it.
Of the more than 35 women that Reuben interviewed from around her community, a shocking 25 of them said they were still receiving the controversial anti-reproduction drugs from Israeli health care providers.
In at least one instance, an Ethiopian woman was given Depo-Provera as a "flu shot," meaning doctors lied to her about what the shot actually was in order to trick her into sterilizing herself.
Another Ethiopian woman who was pregnant at the time of her arrival in Israel told Reuben that Israeli officials had gathered her and all of the other new mothers in the transit camp where she lived for seven years and told them that they would all be given Depo-Provera because it would be too "difficult" to allow them to give birth in Israel.
"No, we didn't want to take it – we refused," the unnamed woman stated in the film. "We said we didn't want it."
The only reason this unnamed woman agreed to take the Depo-Provera shot is because she and the other women were threatened with deportation back to Africa if they refused.
"This happened to many, many other women," Reuben explained.
Between 2003 and 2013, some 50,000 Ethiopian Jews migrated to Israel, making it one of the fastest-growing demographics in the country.
"The Israel ministry of health neither advises nor encourages the use of Depo-Provera injections and if they are being administered this is in despite of our view," a spokesperson from the Israeli government claimed at the time about the matter.
