Sterilise drug addicts for 200 or $300, because eugenics isn't evil if it's done by a charity

Some American Charity has been growing in presence in the UK called Project Prevention. Their general idea is to pay drugs addicts 200 or $300 to undergo sterilisation.
You could argue that it's all well and good, no one is being forced into anything but I don't think drugs addicts are really going to turn down any money offered to them even if it entails making a really bad choice. It's like offering a 5 year old candy in exchange for any money they earn in the future. They aren't capable of making that choice and more than likely don't grasp the consequences.

What do you guys think of this? Is it right to exploit addicts who are not of sound mind into life altering choices?
