Amazing That This Still Happens

If you think we've progressed as country since the days of medical experiments on blacks and Japanese internment camps, sad to say, we haven't.

Victims speak out about North Carolina's sterilization program, which targeted women, young girls and blacks.

I guess it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, since politicians think they have a right to women's bodies and the lives and loves of lgbt people.

Still, it's pretty disgusting.

While I (of course) agree that this is horrific and the victims deserve compenstation, it's inaccurate to label it as "this still happens," since the program in question was disbanded ~35 years ago.

Perhaps not, but as I'm almost 50, 1977 doesn't seem that long ago to me. ;P

The law wasn't repealed until 2003, so it took them a long while to fully acknowledge it and to try to make it right.
