You’re well aware of the dire state of reproductive justice in the United States. You know that recent legislative moves such as the so-called “Heartbeat Bills” and the reduction of funding for Planned Parenthood severely threaten the lives of all folks capable of pregnancy or experiencing health conditions that affect the female reproductive system. 

But there’s another threat to reproductive justice which works in tandem with these laws. Because even as abortion access gets choked by a million restrictions, Crisis Pregnancy Centers proliferate.

The film puts the viewer in the room at these misleading clinics, as volunteer recruits are taught how to deceive women. This first film, created by Heba Elorbany in 2017, touches on a variety of themes—women’s issues, religion and identity, politics, policy and cultural debates. Her more recent film, “An Act of Worship,” is about Muslim-American activists resisting Islamophobic policies. vimeo.com/246310308
