No Más Bebés

DVD

No Más Bebés investigates the history of Mexican-American women who were coercively sterilized at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the late 1960s and 1970s. Many of the mothers spoke no English, and were pushed into tubal ligations in the late stages of labor — often based on little more than the question “More babies?” The program follows a group of mothers, young Chicana lawyers, and a whistle-blowing doctor who stood up to powerful institutions in the name of justice.
