    US sterilisation victims possibly getting compo

    Link to BBC story in the first post

    Essentially, years ago, certain states in America sterilised part of its community for being, among others, gay, feeble minded, on welfare, mentally ill or suffering from epilepsy. The reason being they would not be able to bring children of 'worthyness' into the world.

    In the state of North Carolina, they could get compensation of just $20,000. Do you think it was a good idea in its day but outdated now? Is $20,000 enough? What else could the state do to compensate these people?

    I don't know why you'd sterilize the gays.

    The rest make some sort of sense though (inb4 'ooh, we're running out of people on this planet')

    Sterilising those on welfare?! What would happen to Jeremy Kyle?!

    If they were going to be selective, wouldn't it have been better to pick those who breed like rabbits?

    Quite, what would most of the HUKD misc do during the day if that went?

    This is done in the UK to drug addicts and the like - they get paid something like £200 to get sterilised...

    That's an American Charity.

    It has some warrants however the legal/moral nightmare of this kind of thing is immense.

    People popping out 4+ kids with no regard over how to provide is a massive drain on all forms of life for anyone and there is no need to have that many in the european community, we have no need to have 4+ to make sure at least 1-2 of those survive past childhood etc.

    Perhaps however this is a step too far but unsure how you would solve the dynamics of keeping the population sustainable without degradation of the populus.

    Why would you sterilise the gays? In theory i agree with it for criminals, jeremy kyle rejects etc..
