PODCAST: ‘Birthright: A War Story’

Women’s reproductive rights are under attack, yet again. In the United States, women are being jailed, physically violated, traumatized, endangered, and even dying as a result of increasing restrictions on abortion rights and limited control over their reproductive health. A new documentary, Birthright: A War Story, tells the stories of real women who have become collateral damage in the aggressive campaign to control women’s bodies and reproductive capacity.

In this episode, I speak with the director of Birthright, Civia Tamarkin, about the film and the horrifying reality of women living in the United States today.

Birthright: A War Story premieres today in New York City. To find a screening near you, visit birthrightfilm.com.
