“Can she hear us?”
“Most likely. She’s just sedated. It will keep her still and help with the pain, but she will probably be aware. Plus the dosage was more of an estimate than an exact science.”
“I’m sorry, Dr -?”
“We don’t do names here. I don’t know yours, you don’t know mine. It’s for the best.”
“Right, right. I- I was just wondering, I mean, the woman who sent me here, she wasn’t exactly clear on how this would work…”
“Your daughter is high risk for fertility, and you want to ensure she fails her fertility exam, am I correct?”
“Yes. She can’t bear the thought of being a Breeder. And I can’t bear the thought of her being sent to that place against her will, being forced to-”
“It’s alright. You don’t need to explain. Now, there are several ways to cause infertility, both surgically and chemically. However, we have two boundaries placed upon us.
One is, of course, finance. I’m sure your contact explained you can probably get a ‘cleaner’ procedure elsewhere for a higher fee – our resources here are quite limited.”
“She… she did. But there’s no way we could afford the sorts of prices-”
“It’s alright, really. I see plenty of people in your situation. Now, boundary number two is detection. Any method we use must not appear to be surgical.
That means no ovary removal, no tubes tied. It will be too obvious during your daughter’s physical. So, with these things in mind, our best cause of sterility is cervical trauma.
That is what we are going to do today.”
“Oh my God. Is that a curling iron?!”
“No, no. Although I can see why you’d think that. This is what we’ll be using today to cause significant trauma to your daughter’s cervix.
When the cervix is damaged enough, it becomes permanently weakened and can no longer hold the weight of a growing infant, causing miscarriage.
Any pregnancies she has will self-terminate, and therefore, she’ll be declared infertile.”
“But won’t the doctor’s notice during her physical?”
“Your daughter should claim an unreported violent rape within recent years when answering questions about her sexual history.
The tests are confidential, so you don’t have to worry about police involvement. Now, we really must begin.
Like I said before, the dosage of her sedative isn’t very accurate, and I’d hate for it to run out before we complete the procedure. It will be rather painful.”
