      Probe: Ethiopians Unknowingly Given Birth-Control Shots

      State Comptroller Yoseph Shapiro decided, Sunday, to investigate the giving of Depo-Provera birth-control shots to women in the Ethiopian immigrant community. It is possible that some of the women did not understand the implications at the time.

      The investigation was requested by a number of Knesset members, including Chairwoman Orly Levi-Abekasis of the Committee on the Rights of the Child.
