1921 in Hagåtña.
Maria Leon Guerrero, a kantora (singer) in the Cathedral and daughter of the techa Vicenta, went to the hospital complaining of abdominal pains. The American doctor ordered an x-ray done. Maria refused.
Why? According to Maria, disrobing for an x-ray would "injure her modesty."
She finally consented to the x-ray on the condition that her husband remain at her side. The x-ray revealed she had kidney stones.
