Wichita Abortion Rights Activists Laud Film



WICHITA - Women's rights activists in Kansas are praising a romantic comedy about abortion. Julie Burkhart, founder of Trust Women and the South Wind Women's Center, says the groups asked that the movie "Obvious Child" be shown in Wichita so the community could it. She says it is time Hollywood portrayed abortion in a more authentic way since it is a common experience. The Guttmacher Institute says half of all U.S. pregnancies are unintended, and four in 10 of these are terminated by abortion.
 
"Obvious Child" ranked 20th in the latest weekly box office top-20 list compiled by Rentrak. The film has grossed $1.9 million since it was released five weeks ago. It is showing in 202 locations. The movie will be shown July 11-13 at the Warren Theatre in Wichita.
