July 31, at 10 am, 3845 North Swan Street – “Motherhood By Choice, Not Chance”

"Motherhood By Choice, Not Chance" is a 2004 documentary film directed by filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman, in which she takes key moments from each of the three films from her trilogy called, “CHOICE: From the Back-Alleys to the Supreme Court & Beyond.” 

Fadiman uses first person stories to bring the history of the struggle for women’s reproductive rights in the United States to life. These interviews demonstrate the hard work and passion of those who brought abortion out from the shadows to give women a safe, legal choice.

Fadiman said, "After six years in production, I realized that the two-and-a-half-hour series was too long to show in most setting, such as meetings or classrooms. Working with a core member of my production team, Katie Peterson, we put together Motherhood by Choice, a film based on the most powerful and provocative moments from each of the three films. The result was a half-hour DVD which could easily be shown at conferences, in academic settings and as a highlight of any gathering. While each of the individual films are still shown, many groups find the 30-minute constellation of clips a perfect length."

After the film there will be a moderated discussion about this important topic. 

There are speakers on the patio if you wish to enjoy the service outside.
