Birthright: A War Story

One Time Only – Film + Discussion

Panel Discussion

On Tuesday, September 19, after the film, stay for a panel discussion moderated by Sarah Croucher, Executive Director, NARAL Pro-Choice CT who will speak about the effects of the anti-choice movement in Connecticut.

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.
