McCrory, Tillis tout NC eugenics compensation

Monday, October 27th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina officials say help is on the way for some people sterilized under orders of state officials over several decades, but only a fraction of those who lost the chance to start a family will be compensated.

Gov. Pat McCrory and state House Speaker Thom Tillis issued statements Monday ahead of Friday’s deadline for the first compensation checks to victims of North Carolina’s past eugenics program. North Carolina is the first state to compensate victims by setting aside $10 million.

But many of those who were sterilized could get nothing. Only about 30 percent of the 731 compensation claims submitted had been approved by the end of September. About 7,600 people deemed feeble-minded or otherwise undesirable were sterilized by counties and the state over 45 years.
