list of all time favorite films.
Black Christmas was released in 1974, only one year after the ruling of Roe v. Wade, and it is a film that continues to stand as a strong political statement about the importance, the severe impact of the necessity of abortion laws and the protection of women and birthing individuals against violence.
On this day of June 24th 2022, nearly half a century after its historic ruling, Roe v. Wade was overturned by a group of individuals with no care for the…
