This documentary is important and yet almost unbearable to watch. There are 2 Americas and one is hellbent on enslaving women.
After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, abortion rights are now left up to each state to decide, opening the floodgates for bans across the country.
Fault Lines traveled to Texas, where the landmark case was born in 1970, and where abortion is now illegal in nearly all cases.
‘The End of Roe’ follows a doctor, staff and patients in an Austin clinic in the immediate days after the decision as they navigate the legal chaos and uncertainty of a post-Roe America. It also follows a group of women who had to cross state lines to access abortions and finds that, for many, this journey is not possible. With more states instituting bans and little support from the government, people are often left with no choice over their reproductive health.
Come, watch the film, confront the implications of the bitter reality now unfolding, and stay for the discussion after this film. The film shows one way the USA is tearing apart. Where is this heading, and what is at stake not just for people here, but for the world? How do we fight, yes, for safe, legal abortion – but even more for a revolutionary future people would want to live in?
