I can think of a few dozen people I'd like to nominate for sterilization. I'd also like to see laws where anyone convicted of a crime against a minor are sterilized, and all child molesters. (I'd add castration for those folks)
Anyone with more than 1 kid per $10,000 in household income ? get in line
Anyone with kids born with drug addictions ? get in line

If I understand it correctly, North Carolina should be ashamed.
Even though the practice ended more than 30 years ago, some say the time has come to make amends. North Carolina was one of the first states out of 33 that once practiced sterilization to offer an apology. State Rep. Larry Womble is crafting a bill to provide financial reparations.

So what....North Carolina should be ashamed for being one of the first states to come to terms with its past. This is not something that just happened in North Carolina. I applaud my home state for doing what is right, and attempting to address this dark spot on its history.
