No Más Bebés is the story of immigrant mothers who were pushed into sterilizations while giving birth at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the 1970s. Alongside intrepid young Mexican American lawyers, and armed with hospital records secretly gathered by a whistle-blowing doctor, the mothers faced public exposure and stood up to powerful institutions in their fight for reproductive justice. Their campaign galvanized the early Chicana feminist movement and led to the landmark lawsuit Madrigal v. Quilligan. Produced and directed by Renee Tajima-Peña, produced by Virginia Espino.
