Abortion: Stories Women Tell
First screened in August 2016
Director: Tracy Droz Tragos. Documentary about women from Missouri traveling to Illinois to obtain legal abortions, the reasons behind their choices, and the staffs of the clinics they visit.

Twitter Capsule: Candor and diversity of these testimonies are priceless. Powerful, but some subjects get short shrift.

VOR:   Somehow, many people who want to protect abortion rights still seem unclear on how precarious they are. Film fights that blindness, and any stereotypes of abortion patients.
