A task force created by the state government has decided that a  North Carolina program that sterilized  African Americans involuntarily from 1929 and 1974 was unjust.   The practice of eugenics is an applied science that aims to control the population.  More than 7,600 people were forced to be sterilized in an attempt to ‘improve the state’s human population” All of the victims who were forced into this procedure were young, black, and poor.

The government panel has decided that victims of this heinous procedure should be paid $50,000 to compensate them.

The video above shows victims of eugenics speaking about what they had to go through and how it felt for them to have their God given ability to conceive children stripped away from them.

This is really sad!
