Were you sterilized?

Many people who lived in state-run hospitals, homes and institutions through 1979 were sterilized, leaving them unable to have biological children. Additionally, many people who were in custody of a state prison or other correctional facility after 1979 were forcibly or involuntarily sterilized.

The Forced or Involuntary Sterilization Compensation Program financially compensates survivors of state-sponsored sterilization.
