Birthright: A War Story
A film by Civia Tamarkin
US, 2017, 100 minutes, Color, DVD, English
Order No. W171207

BIRTHRIGHT is the real-life version of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” In America today, a radical movement has tightened its grip on state power, seeking to control whether and how women bear children. In this crusade, women are the collateral damage; pregnant women are subject to state control, surveillance, and punishment. Even women who don’t want an abortion face shocking risks—like the pregnant woman in Alabama who faced criminal charges for taking half a Valium, or like the grieving woman in Nebraska who, already devastated by the loss of her fetus at 22 weeks, was forced to continue an unviable and dangerous pregnancy because of a new “fetal pain” law. BIRTHRIGHT tells these stories of women caught up in a frightening new legal system, which criminalizes and physically violates women, threatens our lives, and challenges our constitutional protections.
