A Mother and Daughter on Abortion

Top of page

The document of an intimate conversation between a mother and her adult daughter. They speak candidly about their personal experiences in trying to obtain an abortion, and how, in different decades--before and after the 1969 amendment to the federal law--each got caught up in the system and its rules. A discussion-starter on the complex issues related to abortion. (This film was made from material filmed for Abortion: Stories from North and South.)
