No Más Bebés tells the story of a little-known but landmark civil rights case, Madrigal v. Quilligan.
In 1975 a small group of immigrant women sued county doctors, the state, and the U.S.
government after they were sterilized while giving birth at Los Angeles County-USC
Medical Center during the late 1960s and early 1970s. 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.
