“Birthright: A War Story” is another great documentary on reproductive health care, but this one shows both sides of the war on women’s reproductive rights in America.
Please join us for a screening and panel discussion of Dawn Porter’s documentary Trapped on Thursday, July 26, 2018, in Raleigh. Trapped documents the dangerous effects TRAP laws (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers) have on people seeking an abortion and the medically unnecessary restrictions they place on abortion providers.
Funneling money to fake women’s clinics while defunding Planned Parenthood sends a clear message that our leadership does not care about women’s health; especially low-income women. At this 5/22/18 event, we will focus on Crisis Pregnancy Centers, CPCs, which lie to women and scare and manipulate them in order to prevent them from having abortions. CPCs being allowed to lie is currently under consideration by the Supreme Court. Also looking at state and federal funding sources, and the new Trump attack on Planned Parenthood funding that just happened on 5/18/18.
Upcoming events in May 2018 with Charlotte NOW, and the June meeting information.
