From the website, about the film:
"[FETUS ENVY]...a timely, political satire that takes a sobering look at the “War on Women” and the criminalization of reproductive rights, by examining where our culture is headed when critical decisions affecting women’s healthcare are commandeered by ambitious politicians and faceless bureaucrats.
Think this sounds ridiculous? Think this is over the top? Think this would never happen? THINK AGAIN! “In South Carolina alone, an estimated 300 women have been arrested for actions taken during pregnancy. Rennie Gibbs of Mississippi age 15 faces life in jail after a miscarriage, Bei Bei Shuai of Indiana has been charged with foeticide and sits in jail without parole, and Amanda Kimborough of Alabama, mother of 3, faces 10 years behind bars if convicted of causing her miscarriage…and her three children risk losing their mother.”
The war on women is real — and dangerous. This isn’t about left or right. This is about putting the power of women’s health and reproductive rights back where it belongs:
IN THE HANDS OF WOMEN
Fetus Envy, it’s not just a film; it’s a movement!"
