Hundreds of top physicians in Sri Lanka came together to debunk the myth of the ‘sterilization pill’ last week, after propagation of fake news about the ability of the ‘pill’ to render the consumer infertile led to communal unrest and violence targeting the Muslim community in Ampara, two weeks ago.

The now infamous “wanda pethi” controversy has been repeatedly debunked by scientists and medical professionals, who insist that human beings cannot be rendered infertile outside of certain surgical procedures.

A group of individual medical professionals, who gathered at Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA) to brief the media on the subject last Thursday (15) said, there exists no such pill that can render its user infertile, according to western medicine.

How did we verify this?
