Preconceived: Pilot Screening and Discussion

You are invited to join us for a screening of the documentary Preconceived. Preconceived is a film that discusses the history, tactics, and harms of anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers. It also features Gender Justice Special Projects Advisor, Erin Maye Quade.

We are looking for a small group for a discussion of the film and to help us workshop materials for future, larger screenings in our efforts to educate on the the harms of anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers. Dinner provided.

We would love your perspective and ideas in this effort!

About the film:

Where does someone turn when facing an unplanned pregnancy? Preconceived tells the stories of Maleeha and Maria, two women who, while navigating unplanned pregnancies, inadvertently found themselves at facilities discouraging them from abortions. The film is a window in to these enigmatic centers that some call “pregnancy resource centers” and others call “fake clinics.” Shedding light on how many of these centers are a part of a movement striving to make abortion unthinkable and illegal, the documentary explores the complex role of deception, finances, faith, and privacy. Amid a shifting legal landscape, Preconceived underscores the significance of understanding the resources available to pregnant people.
