FREDERICK, Md.—A documentary film that looks at women's reproductive health choices and the debate around reproductive health care will be shown March 19 at 7 p.m. in the Hodson Auditorium in Rosenstock Hall at Hood College.
The HBO-original film, 12th and Delaware, takes place on a street corner in Fort Pierce, Fla., where an abortion clinic sits on one side of the street and a pro-life pregnancy clinic on the other. Filmmakers interview the staff at both facilities as well as women who are deciding whether to have an abortion or continue the pregnancy. NARAL Pro-Choice staff members will lead a post-screening discussion.
The event, sponsored by Hood’s women’s and gender studies program, Hood's department of sociology and social work and NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland, is intended to start conversations about the mission of crisis pregnancy centers and the information or misinformation they provide clients about the services they offer.
The event is free but tickets are required. Tickets can be reserved at http://hoodscreening.eventbrite.com.
