Upcoming Film

No Mas Bebes 

  • Thursday, April 13, 2017
  • 12:00 noon CT
  • ACB 240

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.
