GUEST: Renee Tajima-Peña, Director of ‘No Mas Bebes’.

A new documentary airing shortly on PBS, covers a grisly era of California history – the forced sterilization of untold numbers of poor, mostly Latino, Spanish-speaking women, in the 1960s and 70s. No Mas Bebes tells the story of how ten women, led by a courageous attorney, sued doctors at the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center over tubal ligation procedures that were conducted on them without their knowledge.

‘No Mas Bebes’ will air on PBS stations on February 1st.
