Exclusive Screening and Discussion of The Abortion Talks | November 29, 2022

November 29, 2022 at 6:00 pm ET Public Event

The Abortion Talks

The Abortion Talks, a new documentary, examines the six-year clandestine dialogue that took place between three abortion-rights and three anti-abortion leaders in the aftermath of the 1994 Brookline clinic murders. Not yet publicly released, it offers a convincing look at the value of constructive disagreement around an emotionally-charged topic that is front-of-mind for many of our students. Can we learn from these efforts?

The 90-minute screening will be followed by a 30-minute pre-recorded discussion between HxA’s Kyle Vitale and the filmmakers, HxA Member Sarah Perkins and Josh Sabey, on how the film’s topics translate to campus and higher education today.

The link will be sent to you at 6:00 p.m. on the date you select and will be live for 9 hours. Register below to receive the exclusive stream link. Please select between these two event dates:
