"Obvious Child" Screening and RHA Activism

Monday, February 22

Join us for a screening of Obvious Child, a short romantic comedy about a Brooklyn gal who has an unplanned pregnancy, an abortion, and a great first date in an unlikely location. Activists from NARAL Pro-Choice New York will be there to talk about how you can help pass the Reproductive Health Act, a critical bill that will protect the fundamental right of a woman and her doctor to make private medical decisions here in New York State.
