This deeply moving documentary presents the stark history of what life was like for American women before abortion was made legal, safe and widely available, all elements now at risk of returning. Dorothy will also present portions of her documentary that record the history of women demanding their rights, resulting in Roe v Wade.
[Speaker to be announced] will discuss the ramifications of the recent Supreme Court case, the wide-ranging and highly organized use of TRAP laws nationally to challenge women.s hard-won rights, and what the future of freedom of choice might look like.

Reproductive Justice Initiative hostsFrom the BACK ALLEYS to the SUPREME COURT & BEYOND
Please join representatives of the USG Reproductive Justice Initiative for an engaging evening as we host filmmaker, Dorothy Fadiman, on her Choice at Risk Campaign screening tour. The screening will include one or more films from Fadiman's trilogy on abortion rights, and/or selections of mini-docs culled from these films.
One of Choice at Risk's main goals is to present an informed, essential balance to the often volatile conversation surrounding reproductive rights. Topics on which the seven mini-docs focus include the era of back alley abortions; the legal history of contraception and abortion; the impact of restrictions on minorities and youth; and the threats of violence aimed at clinics and providers. The overarching goals are to educate, motivate and activate people to protect women's and men's reproductive rights.
Last spring, Reproductive Justice was selected as one of the top four social justice issues that USG would support this church year. In addition, Delegates of the 2012 General Assembly in Phoenix, AZ, selected "Reproductive Justice: Expanding Our Social Justice Calling" to be the 2012-2016 Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) of Congregations.
It is in keeping with these goals at both USG and at the UUA that we present Dorothy Fadiman and her work on this incredibly important topic.
Join us on Sept. 28 for this wonderful chance to view Dorothy's work and to sit down with her and talk about these important issues. Bring an appetizer or snack to share for fellowship and enjoyment. To RSVP, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
