Kia ora Christchurch members and friends,
ALRANZ, Abortion Rights Aotearoa, invites you to a screening of Dawn Porter's acclaimed documentary TRAPPED.
Join us from 6pm for welcome and nibbles, before the screening at 7pm.
A panel discussion after the film will explore how the situation in the States relates to New Zealand's current criminalisation of abortion.
Tickets are $15 for general admission or $10 for unwaged/students and includes nibbles.
To book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and please share this event with your networks.
**If the price is problematic, we would rather you come with a koha than not come at all!**
About the film:
"Since 2010, 288 laws regulating abortion providers have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt) that prevents individual states from essentially outlawing abortion. Trapped follows the clinic workers and lawyers who were on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women."
We look forward to seeing you there for a night of discussion and reflection on reproductive rights!
