Come see these important films about what it was like when abortion was illegal, and learn how Roe v Wade has already vanished for many women in poverty and women of color.
“Leona's Sister Gerri” (1995), is an award winning film by Jane Gillooly.
This film tells the dramatic story of Gerri Santoro, a mother of two and the "real person" in the now famous photo of an anonymous woman on a motel floor, dead from an illegal abortion. Reprinted thousands of times on placards, and in the media, this shocking photo became a pro-choice icon.
“The Last Abortion Clinic” (2005)
Written, produced and directed by Raney Aronson-Rath.
The New York Times said "...'The Last Abortion Clinic,' gives a lucid picture of how the anti-abortion movement in states like Mississippi has worked so many hurdles into local laws that abortions are almost unattainable for poor women." This film will show you how right wing extremists are using state government, and the courts to deny reproductive rights to women.
If you care about a woman's right to choose, NOW is the time to get informed and involved. Abortion has already been banned in South Dakota. Who’s next?
