Abstract:
In a lawsuit earlier this year, the less than 3,000 surviving victims of the state's eugenics policy will split a $10 million settlement. This article speaks with one of the more outspoken victims, Elaine Riddick, who describes how she was deemed a candidate for sterilization by the North Carolina Eugenics Board over 30 years ago. The author discusses the injustice of Riddick's and the other 7,600 other state citizens affected by the sterilization program, and how a monetary settlement does not repair the emotional damage suffered.

Abstract:
Action by the NC Eugenics Board led to the sterilization by choice or coercion of 7,600 people between 1933 and 1973. It took place in every one of the state's 100 counties--to men women, blacks, whites, and Native Americans, those who already had children, and those who had not reached puberty. It was the state's way to cleanse itself of the contamination of poverty, disability, and mental illness. The 2013 NC General Assembly provided compensation--$10 million--to be paid in 2015 to the 3,000 living victims. But it will not make the victims whole again.
