Re: “Sterilization Victims Foundation restarts victim verification requests

Thank goodness they're still doing verifications through the Foundation. People have a right to know if they were sterilized by the state and exactly what information is in their records.

I don't know if any of the sterilization victims will receive reparations, but at least they'll know the truth.

Re: “What lawmakers could learn from Sheriff Andy Taylor

The Republican-led senate seems driven to pull "the fast one." They pulled it by using a Senate rule to sidestep the eugenics victims' compensation issue.

I'm a Republican, and I'm mortified by the lack of compassion exhibited by our Republican senators. I hope each one feels the full weight of his and her decisions, the type of decisions that would keep a decent person up at night.

My deceased grandmother and great-aunt were sterilized by the authority of North Carolina's eugenics' board, and my family looked forward to seeing the LIVING victims compensated. Compensation for the living victims would have acted as symbolic justice for our family. What did we get? More rhetoric and excuses.

The good news is: we voted this bunch in and we can vote them out.
