In the wake of the SCOTUS ruling overturning Roe v. Wade ending the right to abortion, ON THE DIVIDE follows the stories of three Latinx Catholics living in McAllen, Texas. These members of a border community are connected by only one unforeseen place, the last abortion clinic on the US/México border. As threats to the clinic and their personal safety mount, they are forced to make decisions they never could have imagined. This film explores how each of them balances faith and the right to reproductive services, sparking important conversations about how individuals can be Christian AND pro-choice.
Join us at The Hub on Saturday, 16 July, at 3 PM to experience personal and undoubtedly intimate stories that some of us will likely never experience directly. The film is a powerful tool to start civil conversations about how we can provide comfort and compassion for those amid their reproductive stories. Empathy and support for the reproductive justice movement are needed right now.
