Rachel Miller, a Redding attorney and mother, was originally denied her request for a post-partum tubal ligation at Mercy Medical Center in Redding. She and her husband wanted to have her tubes tied after the scheduled C-section of their second child but the hospital declined to do the procedure, citing religious and ethical policies against sterilization. After the ACLU threatened legal action, the hospital relented and performed the procedure following the birth of Miller’s baby in September 2015.
