The Business of Being Born - SJ Movie Night
Friday, August 15th at 6:30 pm
Birth is a miracle, a rite of passage, a natural part of life. But birth is also big business.Compelled to explore the subject after the delivery of her first child, actress Ricki Lake recruits filmmaker Abby Epstein to question the way American women have babies.
The film interlaces intimate birth stories with surprising historical, political and scientific insights and shocking statistics about the current maternity care system. When director Epstein discovers she is pregnant during the making of the film, the journey becomes even more personal.Should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potentially catastrophic medical emergency?
Social Justice Movie Night is always the 3rd Friday, 6:30pm, at the Davenport Unitarian Church.
Everyone is welcome, free popcorn and lemonade.
See ya at the movies!
