We're witnessing shocking attacks on women in America. In Congress, the new proposed "health care" bill could defund Planned Parenthood and cut maternal health care funding for low income women. Restrictive reproductive health care laws are being introduced in state legislatures all across the country, with little regard for science or respect for women's ability to make their own medical decisions.

Named by The Daily Beast as " a timely new documentary ", and described by Newsweek as a "documentary that shows how the U.S. is becoming the Handmaid's Tale", BIRTHRIGHT: A WAR STORY  examines how women are being jailed, physically violated and even put at risk of dying as a radical movement tightens its grip across America.  

The documentary explores the accelerating gains of the crusade to control pregnant women and the fallout that is creating a public health crisis, turning pregnant women into criminals and challenging the constitutional protections of every woman in America.
