Civic Cinema
No Más Bebés (No More Babies)

Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center

Part of the WLRC’s Reproductive Justice Film Series.

They came to have their babies. They went home sterilized. The story of immigrant mothers 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 1960s 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.

Approx. 79 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Professor Elena R. Gutierrez, Gender and Women’s Studies Program, and Latin American and Latino Studies Program.
