NYC screening of No Woman No Cry film

2011 April 29
by Family Care International

Next Monday evening, May 2nd, the Paley Center for Media will host a screening of Christy Turlington Burns’ documentary No Woman, No Cry, which illuminates the global tragedy of women dying needlessly in pregnancy and childbirth. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by NBC News anchor Brian Williams and featuring FCI president Ann Starrs along with Christy Turlington Burns and Dr. Suellen Miller of the University of California-San Francisco.

In her deeply moving film, Christy relates how, after a childbirth complication during her own first pregnancy, she wanted to learn more about maternal health around the world. She shares the powerful stories of at-risk pregnant women in four parts of the world: a remote Maasai tribe in Tanzania, a slum in Bangladesh, a post-abortion care ward in Guatemala, and a prenatal clinic in the United States.

    Jennie Joseph CPM, featured in No Woman No Cry, could be arrested in 23 states for practicing midwifery. Licensure laws are consistantly blocked by organized medicine. Please sign the change.org petition asking ACOG to stop its WAR ON MIDWIVES. Women in all 50 states deserve access to this type of care.
