New Film—Not Yet Rain—Tells the Stories of Women Who Have Sought Abortion Care
March 11, 2009 posted by Kyla Bender-Baird Yesterday, the fantastic international reproductive rights organization, IPAS contacted the Council, announcing the launch of an important new film: Not Yet Rain. Here’s the scoop:
Worldwide, unsafe abortion endangers 19 million women every year, damaging the health and future fertility of several million and causing approximately 67,000 preventable deaths. Set in Ethiopia, and directed by independent filmmaker Lisa Russell, the film Not Yet Rain –– tells the stories of women who have sought abortion care. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, others hopeful, but the message is the same: that safe abortion care plays a vital role in the overall health of women and their families.
I encourage you to visit the movie’s site to watch the trailer and learn more. The film will launch on April 8, 2009.
