BRIEF: UNCW Women’s Resource Center and LGBTQIA office hosts abortion film series

The University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Women’s Resource Center and the LGBTQIA Resource Office are hosting The Stories of Choice at 3:30 p.m. April 16 in the Wrightsville Beach room inside the Fisher Student Union on campus. The event will highlight stories of reproductive choice.

An Abortion Speak-Out will be held at 4 p.m. April 17 in the Port City Room of the Fisher Student Union, including a showing of “The Abortion Diaries.” A discussion of decisions about abortion will be held after the movie “as we work to destigmatize this procedure,” according to a release about the event.

Area anti-abortion groups were not included in the program.

  1. In this extremist political environment when inalienable rights for women are no longer inalienable, women better be willing to become activists or their daughters and all women will, once again, be second class citizens. What’s next, burkas? I strongly commend this event and others like it!

  2. Also, you mention no pro-life groups were invited, but if you notice no pro-choice groups were invited. This is not an event for debate, political diatribes or polemic. It is an environment for people to share experiences free of political rhetoric.
    And thanks David.
