Reproductive rights in the US--going, going, gone? Although we are all knowledgeable about the attack on reproductive justice, this film provides unexpected information and will be enlightening. "Birthright: A War Story" examines what has happened to women's reproductive rights in America since the historic Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 legalized abortion. Director Civia Tamarkin traces the strategy the anti-abortion movement has used to make reproductive choice unavailable, even if it is still legal: For over 40 years it has played the long game, working state by state to pass laws that chip away at women's reproductive healthcare options. The war story that "Birthright" traces is a war of attrition.
