The Clara Bell Duvall Reproductive Freedom Project is relaunching the timeless and timely documentary, Motherless: a legacy of loss from illegal abortion. This 27-minute documentary film by Janet Goldwater and Barbara Attie depicts the experiences of four children who lost their mothers to unsafe and illegal abortion before Roe v. Wade. Exactly 20 years after the film’s creation, the relaunch seeks to remind us of the relevance that the issues raised in Motherless continue to have in today’s political climate.
Join the Duvall Reproductive Freedom Project along with the filmmakers for our Watch Motherless Party at the Philadelphia Art Alliance on Tuesday, November 13th where we will screen the film will discuss the role the film plays in the current political climate surrounding reproductive rights and justice.
Motherless’ impact depends on people watching the film and starting a dialogue. You can help spread the message of Motherless by sharing the film’s website on your personal Facebook page and Twitter profile tonight! We invite supporters to make their voices heard on issues related to reproductive health. Visit us on Twitter @watchmotherless, our Watch Motherless website, or on Facebook for more details about how to participate.
Hosting your own house party with 10 or 20 of your closest friends or classmates is another great way to take action and empower those around you to get involved in this issue. See instructions for hosting a house party on the website.
