    I am in love with this play. What a brilliant idea! Can it be real? After reading Bublitz's play, I used it in conversations with Pro-Life supporters and it left them speechless with no argument back. Thank you for creating such a fantastic point of view.

    Perspective is everything. And because we live in a society where this not scifi, we can file this under "altogether possible." What features a topic of self management of one's own body is really a treatise on a wider issue of societal control of one group over others. A very challenging work and one that will spark heated discussions.

    Can this be real? Bublitz turns the tables on the fight for women's body autonomy rights and creates a brilliant short that leaves me wishing this was the world I lived in. A fantastic addition to any 10-minute play festival.
