As a health care professional, what are your ethical perspectives

Resolved Question:

What specifically are you talking about?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Sterilization of pediphiles
Expert:  DrThomasMD replied 4 years ago.
We do not do this.
So first of all it is not legal.
Secondly it would not be ethical.
Nor would it be to any purpose, it would not change the pedophilia, so it is not therapeutic.

Forced sterilization in this society at least is considered broadly unethical and amoral.
