Birthright: A War Story
Tuesday, September 26th at 6pm-9:30pm
Melwood Screening Room - 477 Melwood Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
BIRTHRIGHT: A WAR STORY is a feature length documentary that 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.
This is the real-life “Handmaid’s Tale.”
PPWP will present the film at Melwood Screening Room (477 Melwood Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213) on Tuesday, September 26th at 7pm. Doors will open at 6 for refreshments and tabling activities, and a panel discussion will follow the film.
Tickets are $10 each, $8 for students/young folks. Purchase them here!
