Underneath the din of politicians posturing about “life” and “choice” and beyond the shouted slogans about murder and rights, there are real stories of real women who have had abortions. Each year in the US, 1.3 million abortions occur, but the topic is still so stigmatized it’s never discussed in polite company. Powerful, poignant, and fiercely honest, I Had an Abortion tackles this taboo, featuring 10 women – including famed feminist Gloria Steinem – who candidly describe experiences spanning seven decades, from the years before Roe v. Wade to the present day. Filmmakers Jennifer Baumgardner and Gillian Aldrich insightfully document how changing societal pressures have affected women’s choices and experiences. Presented by the Maine Choice Coalition, The League of Young Voters, The Portland Phoenix, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, The Family Planning Association of Maine and the Maine Civil Liberties Union.
Start Time: Doors open at 6:30, screening begins at 7pm
Date: 2009-01-28
