In light of the recent Women's March, MLAW proudly presents a screening of No Mas Bebes, a documentary detailing the landmark 1975 civil rights lawsuit Madrigal v. Quilligan in which a group of Mexican immigrant women sued doctors, California State, and the U.S. government for being sterilized while giving birth in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This case is quite the historical reproductive justice event.
