The CT chapter of the National Organization for Women, in partnership with Planned Parenthood of Southern New England, will host a screening of:
BIRTHRIGHT: A WAR STORY
Wednesday, Nov. 1, 7:30 p.m.
Avon Theatre Film Center 272 Bedford St., Stamford, CT 06901
This feature-length documentary examines how women are being jailed, physically violated and even put at risk of dying as a radical movement tightens its grip across America. The film tells the story of women who have become collateral damage in the aggressive campaign to take control of reproductive health care and to allow states, courts and religious doctrine to govern whether, when and how women will bear children. The documentary explores the accelerating gains of the crusade to control pregnant women and the fallout that is creating a public health crisis, turning pregnant women into criminals and challenging the constitutional protections of every woman in America.
A post-film Q&A with filmmaker Luchina Fisher and Ruth Shaber, M.D. — moderated by CT NOW President Cindy Wolfe Boynton — will follow. Tickets are $7, which you can purchase below. Your tickets will be held for you at the theater and available the night of the event. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
