Tue Apr 19 20055/12: Screening of "Speak Out: I Had an Abortion"
Tue Apr 19 2005Documentary to be Screened in SF, Space for Women to Talk About Abortion Experiences
“Speak Out: I had an abortion," a documentary by Jennifer Baumgardner and Gillian Aldrich, will be screened on May 12th from 7-9pm at 777 Valencia, between 19th and 20th at New College of California. This documentary features women speaking candidly about their experiences with abortion. “Speak Out” showcases the voices of the first generation of women whose reproductive rights were recognized and safeguarded by the US. This film was made as part of the larger "I had an abortion" campaign, which Jennifer started last year in response to what she sees as the attempt by the right to foist a false consciousness of regret, terror and sadness on women who have had abortions. "Speak Out: I had an abortion" gives voice to the truth that each woman’s unique experience with abortion can be supported and respected.
Elizabeth Creely writes, "On January 22, 2005, over 4,000 anti-choice protesters descended on San Francisco bearing the message that abortion hurts women. Women who have personally experienced their own abortion as a tragic mistake deserve to find support. However, their individual experiences should not be used to limit the rights of all women. Let's open up the dialogue and hear even more stories- about our bodies, our beliefs, and ourselves. After the screening, we will invite women who have had abortions to speak up and tell their abortion story publicly. Women who were born after the Roe Decision grew up in a unique moment in history when a woman's right to control her body was established. How do we feel about that?" Read more
This program is sponsored by New College’s Center for Education and Social Action and EXHALE, a woman’s counseling organization.
