Planned Parenthood South Atlantic will be holding a screening of the documentary «Vessel»… and since it will be the day after National Ice Cream Day we thought, «why not include an ice cream bar as well.» So we're doing it and it's going to be delicious and powerful. Also, If you haven't heard about «Vessel» read below:

«As the title suggests, the film deals with a young doctor inspired to live at sea after learning the realities created by anti-abortion laws around the world.

Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, a physician from the Netherlands, felt compelled to start Women on Waves, an initiative to provide women who live in countries with restrictive abortion laws safe medical abortion services on a ship in offshore waters.

The film is a remarkable profile of the creation of an underground network of brave, informed activists who are working at the cutting edge of global reproductive rights and who trust and empower women to handle abortion themselves.

Showcasing not just victories, but also chronicling unsuccessful missions, „Vessel“ is a film not just about abortion but also about activism. It raises provocative questions about the power of laws, how information is policed in the world, and the fight for bodily autonomy in an increasingly globalized world.»
