Screening of "62 Days" featuring Director Rebecca Haimowitz

January 26, 2019 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

Join the ACLU of Texas, Texas Freedom Network, and filmmaker Rebecca Haimowitz for a free screening of 62 Days, a documentary film that chronicles Marlise's family's painful ordeal, the human story behind the headlines, and shines a light on a controversial law.

Marlise Munoz was 33 years old and 14 weeks pregnant with her second child when she died. She suffered a pulmonary embolism and was pronounced brain-dead in a hospital in Fort Worth, TX. The Munoz family was forced to keep Marlise on mechanical support against their will for 62 days, because of a little known Texas law that states "a person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment...from a pregnant patient."

What followed was a painful ordeal, with critical implications about bodily integrity, rights, and liberty.

Parking on campus will be free and open to the public.
