Good evening...
It's hard to believe it happened , but some people considered to have heriditary flaws in Virginia were sterilized- That practice went on for five decades, ending in 1979.
Now a bill that would make this the first state in the nation to express regrets for the practice of (You-genics) eugenics.
As Ellen Qualls reports the bill in the Senate Rules Committee was reported out.
