Abortion: Stories Women Tell

Abortion: Stories Women Tell

Available on iTunes, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max
Though the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade protected a woman's right to choose, abortion remains one of the most divisive issues in America today. This documentary sheds new light on this contentious issue, focusing not on the debate, but rather on women themselves. Centering on the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City, Illinois, the film profiles women struggling with unplanned pregnancies, providers who show up at the clinic to give medical care, and activists hoping to sway decisions and lives. The result is an intimate window into the lives of women involved in the abortion issue, whose experiences are by turns heartbreaking and tender or bleak and frightening.
