The Dark History of Forced Sterilization of Latina Women

quote [ Between the 1930s and the 1970s, approximately one-third of the female population of Puerto Rico was sterilized, making it highest rate of sterilization in the world. Despite the high rate of sterilizations, the dark history of these operations remains understudied and hidden in the shadows of history. ]

As a professional historian, I consider myself reasonably well informed about American history, particularly about topics related to science, technology, and medicine. I had no idea this mass sterilization took place. It boggles the mind!

Jesus, are there any sizeable minorities we _didn't_ sterilize?

Also you should probably use present tense, because it still happens.
