"North Carolina pays sterilization victims Planned Parenthood founder called ‘human waste’" Continued...

North Carolina established the N.C. Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation to compensate victims such as Riddick. The new $10 million fund will be divided among the total number of victims who are still living. So far, only 177 living victims have been verified, which would mean a payout of over $56,000 per person.

The state has estimated nearly 2,000 victims of the program were alive in 2012. They have until June 2014 to come forward and claim compensation.
