  • Chicago, IL - Beautiful Sin Documentary World Premier - 8:30 PM
    The one-hour film tells the surprising story of how Costa Rica became the only country in the world to outlaw IVF, based on the idea that the embryo should have the same legal rights as a person. (This is the same idea behind the personhood initiatives that have been put forth in several states here in the U.S.) BEAUTIFUL SIN follows three couples struggling with infertility in Costa Rica as they take their government before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, in Washington, D.C., to demand that IVF be legalized. Despite the couples’ legal victory in 2010, which set an important precedent about the rights of people with an infertility diagnosis, the Costa Rican government has yet to legalize IVF.  BEAUTIFUL SIN was funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and will air nationally on PBS sometime in 2014. Location: AMC River East 21 Theatres, 322 E Illinois St, Chicago, IL 60611 A 45-second trailer is available online, on the festival’s website, where you can also buy tickets.

Once you have done that, release the balloon into the sky. Get family involved. They could write their hopes and dreams for you, how infertility has affected them through you, what they have learned through your journey, etc. In those balloons, it would be great to put National Infertility Awareness Week 2014. We never know where these balloons will end up and who could potentially find them. By making it known in the balloon what this is for, we can reach out to others. When doing this, take a picture, post it on the event page or on our Infertility Awareness and Support Group page. Also, for those who want to wear a ribbon you can do that and post a picture to one of the two pages also.
