Mother forced to give birth on a clinic lawn when a nurse refused her treatment


Irma Lopez, who was featured in a photograph that shocked the world last year - in which it shows her giving birth on the lawn of a medical clinic after she was refused treatment by health officials - has made a full recovery and is in perfect health, as is her five-month-old son, Sabino.
The attention her shocking photo received has inspired women's rights activists across the globe to end what they call a pattern of poor indigenous Mexican women being turned away from hospitals while in labor, forcing them to give birth on lawns, patios or parking lots.
