Access to the abortion pill, which safely and effectively ends a pregnancy up to 12 weeks, has never been more threatened, directly impacting the lives and rights of people all over America. In spite of being approved by the FDA more than two decades ago and being used in more than half of all abortions in the United States, misinformation about abortion medication is rampant and, in some states, access is largely withheld. Our urgent, timely documentary Plan C had its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival amidst the ongoing public health emergency post-Roe v. Wade. Our film follows Francine Coeytaux, a public health expert and the co-founder of the organization Plan C, as she and her team fight to expand knowledge of – and access to – the abortion pill across the United States. The film reveals the grassroots network and pipelines Plan C built, the criticism they faced, and the hope they have for the future.
A screening of PLAN C, a documentary featuring the Plan C campaign activists and providers who began to mail abortion pills during the pandemic, continuing their critically important work in the face of crumbling reproductive rights and access across the US. Post-screening discussion with Director TRACY DROZ TRAGOS, Professor of Law, KATE SHAW (University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School), and SARAH WHEELER (NYU School of Law, Reproductive Justice Clinic).
Moderator: New York Women in Film and TV Executive Director, CYNTHIA LOPEZ.
