Birthright: A War Story is a feature-length documentary that examines how women are being jailed, physically violated and even 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 overturn Roe v. Wade 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.

Following the film, we will host a short panel discussion with representatives from Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights, the University of Maine Feminist Collective and Mabel Wadsworth Center to further examine the themes of the film in relation to what is happening here in Maine.
