Victims of Forced Sterilization to Receive $10 Million

North Carolina lawmakers passed a budget Wednesday that included $10 million to compensate victims who were forced to be sterilized from 1929 to 1974. The state conducted the eugenics with belief that poverty, promiscuity and alcoholism were inherited traits, and that they could improve the gene pool through sterilization. (Photo: AP Photo/Jim R.
