One Tennessee judge is offering a controversial way for prisoners to get some time shaved off of their sentences. The offer is sterilization. Men can opt for free vasectomies and women can get a birth control injection. So far, 32 women have gotten the birth control implant and 38 men are awaiting vasectomies.
This measure has been met with stiff opposition from those who view this as an unconstitutional means of reducing jail time.
