Movie night: Birthright


Join NWGSDPDX for a screening of Birthright at the Hollywood Theater on 9/7 at 7:30 pm. We recommend buying tickets in advance as this one time showing will sell out.

After the movie, there will be a special Q&A with director Civia Tamarkin.


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.
