Ethics question :

1.  The drought-stricken Beed district in Maharashtra’s Marathwada region came under the scanner after reports came to light about the unusually high rate of hysterectomies among its women, especially among those who migrate to neighboring districts to work as sugar-cane cutters. They have their own farmlands, back home, but drought forced them to move to water rich neighboring villages as labourers.

State figures say that in three years (2016-2019), as many as 4,605 women have had their uterus removed in Maharashtra. Civil rights organisations allege that the hysterectomy rate in Beed is 14 times more than that for the State or the country.

The pattern of the phenomenon is—the Mukkadam hires the poverty stricken couple for cane cutting. He pays advances to the family, but huge poverty suddenly exhausts the advance taken. After every deepavali the couple has to move to adjacent district for cane cutting. Women labourers face severe health issues during menstruation and pregnancy. They have to work for around 14 hours in peak times and their productivity is affected. Cutting less canes or taking leave leads to heavy fine from mukkadam.

Sadly, those labour couples who back-off from the contract are even beaten and tortured. To avoid any irregularity in their jobs, women ponder to take treatment for their issues. A solution more often than not suggested by doctors is hypersectomy (uterus removal surgery). This has happened even with women of 20 years age.

The rise in hypersectomies led to appointment of an investigation team by government which suspected nexus between contractors and doctors. Might be, the contractors would bribe doctors to encourage labourers to undergo hypersectomy so that their business flourishes.

What are the ethical issues in this case? As a District Collector of Beed, what measures you will take to save these labourers from the above vicious cycle of deprivation. (20M)
