BIRTHRIGHT: A WAR STORY

Producer Luchina Fisher in person!

Women are being jailed, physically violated and even put at risk of dying as a radical movement tightens its grip across America


Birthright 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. This is the real life “Handmaid’s Tale.” (USA, 2017, 105 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. Civia Tamarkin)
