Birthright: A War Story

Birthright: A War Story
Documentary | 2017
NR. 1hr 40min DIRECTOR: Civia Tamarkin TUESDAY FILM SERIES

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.

Reviews
An enraging, essential documentary rundown of all the ways that women's rights, agency, and bodily autonomy are under attack in the US. It's not just about abortion.
MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
Birthright is a stark look at how far the rights of half the US population have been eroded, and it should make anybody -- no matter their feelings about abortion -- sit up and take notice.
