The War on Women's Health is Real

1y ago
SOURCE  

Description

Religious conservatives continue to push harsh laws restricting access to women's healthcare across the country. This short documentary brings attention to their efforts and outlines the importance of broad access to contraceptive options. Featured interviews include Rep. Lois Capps (CA-23), who as a former nurse has long been a leader on women's health issues; Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List; and Dr. Kimberly Shepherd, an OB/GYN who provides medical authority on issues that never should've been politicized in the first place. - This documentary film was produced and edited by Chase Whiteside (interviews), Erick Stoll (camera), and Liz Cambron. Graphic design by Chase Whiteside. Motion design by Ashley Walton. Music from the brilliant Jon Brion.
