NC Offers Compensation for Sterilization

Some months ago I wrote about the sorry history of involuntary sterilization in North Carolina.   At the time, North Carolina was considering what compensation would be appropriate.   The appointed commission made it’s recommendations yesterday.  The recommendation is for compensation of $50,000 for those still living.  North Carolina, assuming it approves the payments, will be the first state to offer compensation, though it says about half-a-dozen states had similar programs.  I don’t have comments on this, I’m just following up for those who are interested.
