Who could NOT understand their particular positionalities? Documentary: • “no mas bebes, no more babies” available on iLearn • LA Country USC Medical Center: they would sterilize women without telling them, they just had them sign the consent form w/o explaining what they were signing • It was the working class people that were being sterilized • The people were going to the county hospital which didn’t have the resources necessary, the doctors were students, they didn’t speak the language of the patients • the doctors said they were doing this because of the “fear of over population” BUT they weren’t targeting the population in general they were targeting those of lower social class that they found inferior, but if the problem is over population was this the best solution? NO, they could have brought out birth control and educated women • The data is saying that white male doctors were sterilizing primarily lower class Latina women at overwhelming rates BUT when they filed the law suit, they lost because it was a “she said he said” thing and the document had been signed and the doctors were claiming that “they didn’t have anything against Mexicans personally” • However, even though they lost the lawsuit ALL of the policies changed in the hospitcal in regards to consent and sterilization
