We Don't Practice That Nowadays

CBS News noted that more than 60,000 women in 32 states were sterilized from the 1920′s to the 1970s to keep down welfare costs. The practice is no longer in use.

  Raw Story

The “practice” is “no longer in use”???!! That makes it sound like an old-time herbal remedy that’s been replaced by modern medicine.

North Carolina is the first state to consider a $20,000 payment to victims of sterilizations, but it is doubtful that the Republican-controlled legislature will set aside the necessary funds.
