Democrats to investigate forced surgery claims in Georgia

Leading congressional Democrats reacted furiously Tuesday to lightly-substantiated claims that immigrants held at a detention center in Georgia are undergoing questionable hysterectomies.

In a complaint filed Monday, a nurse alleges that the Irwin County Detention Center performed questionable hysterectomies, refused to test detainees for COVID-19 and shredded medical records.

Democrats seized on the most explosive allegations in the nurse’s complaint — that a gynecologist called the “uterus collector” was performing “mass hysterectomies” — in declaring they would investigate the matter.
