First screened in August 2016

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