Four people who were sterilized at the Central Virginia Training Center were guests Wednesday at the reenactment of a Supreme Court decision that legalized what was done to them just a few miles from Lynchburg in the 1930s.
After the event in Liberty University’s model Supreme Court room, one of Virginia’s staunchest conservative lawmakers, Del. Bob Marshall, R-Prince William, said he will sponsor legislation to provide $50,000 compensation to each sterilization victim.
