Eugenics Compensation Deadline
(Charlotte, NC) -- Victims of a multi-decade sterilization program in North Carolina have until the end of the day to apply to be compensated. A state Eugenics Board began operating in the state in 1929, sterilizing the mentally ill. Of the 76-hundred victims who were sterilized through 1973, about 18-hundred are still thought to be alive.
