Human Rights Speakers Series - Birthright: A War Story

The City of West Hollywood’s HUMAN RIGHTS SPEAKERS SERIES, in conjunction with Hollywood NOW, present a screening and panel discussion:

Birthright: A War Story

BIRTHRIGHT: A WAR STORY is a feature length documentary that exposes the truth of how American women are being jailed, physically violated and even put at risk of dying as a radical movement tightens its grip across America and allows states, courts and religious doctrine to govern whether, when and how women will bear children.
