Detail For Show: Choice at Risk - 7 minidocs and 25 clips in English and versions with Spanish Subtitles

Show Description:

In response to escalating restrictions on reproductive rights, we are offering a video toolkit of resources: 25 short clips (1, 2, 3 mins each), 7 mini-docs (5 to 7 mins each), and 4 documentary films. The clips and mini-docs are culled from Dorothy Fadiman’s OSCAR-nominated, EMMY-winning trilogy From the Back Alleys to the Supreme Court & Beyond.

At the heart of this campaign is the 7 minute mini-doc: Choice at Risk. It traces the history of abortion access in the US - from the back alley days through the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion, then documents the story of an abortion provider whose clinic was firebombed. This final segment underscores the unrelenting challenges faced by those who provide abortion services today.

Share our videos and follow us on FACEBOOK! to support women's reproductive rights!

The 7 minidocs and 25 clips are in English. The ones with Spanish subtitles have a prefix of "Spanish-subtitles-" in the title.
