Court decision in 1973. This Oscar-nominated film includes first person accounts, which reveal the physical, legal, and emotional challenges women faced when abortion was illegal. Until recently, illegal abortion had been a "sealed chapter" in U.S. history. Shame surrounded unintended pregnancies and women rarely admitted having had an abortion. In 1973, most restrictions were lifted. However, new restrictive laws are being enacted and the right to a safe abortion is once again in jeopardy.
