Savannah Daniels started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

Stand against the Forced Sterilization of Immigrants detained in the Irwin County Detention Center (ICDC). 

Nurse-turned-whistleblower, Dawn Wooten, gave on-the-record insights to the following atrocities:

In a Complaint filed by Project South, Georgia Detention Watch, Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, and South Georgia Immigrant Support Network on Monday, September 14, Dawn Wooten, the licensed practical nurse employed by ICDC declared:

  • Everybody [the gynecologist] sees has a hysterectomy — just about everybody. He’s even taken out the wrong ovary on a young lady [detained immigrant woman]. She was supposed to get her left ovary removed because it had a cyst on the left ovary; he took out the right one.
  • “He’s the uterus collector,” Wooten said in the complaint. “I know that’s ugly…is he collecting these things or something? Everybody he sees, he’s taking all their uteruses out or he’s taken their tubes out. What in the world.” 

  • "...this was like an experimental concentration camp."
