Margarita Fernandez, a spokeswoman for the California State Auditor, said the sterilizations were performed by private doctors at hospitals outside the prisons. Surgeries on prison inmates are typically performed at outside facilities.
The legal advocacy group Justice Now raised the issue in January 2010, and the issue surfaced again after the Center for Investigative Reporting found that doctors sterilized nearly 150 female inmates without proper state approval over five years.
The 39 cases were among 144 between 2006 and last year in which inmates had tubal ligations or other procedures for the sole purpose of sterilizing them. Another 650 inmates had other medical Foamposite Eggplant

That includes improving medical record keeping and making sure inmates give their informed consent to medical procedures.
