“No Mas Bebes”
About the Documentary:
They came to the hospital to have their babies. They went home sterilized. The story of immigrant mother who sued county doctors, the state, and the U.S. government after they were pushed into sterilizations while giving birth at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the 1960 and 70s. Led by an intrepid, 26-year old Chicana lawyer and armed with hospital records secretly gathered by a whistle- blowing young doctor, the mothers faced public exposure and stood up to powerful institutions in the name of justice.
