Summary
While abortion will no doubt polarize our society for the foreseeable future, students can learn a great deal from the circumstances, anxieties, and life goals that surround the decision to end a pregnancy. This program presents a poignant and profoundly honest look at that decision through intimate discussions with young British women. Cheryl imagines other choices she might have made if her ex-boyfriend had remained with her. Carmel shares her college and career plans, insisting that she's not ready to bring a child into the world. Hannah describes undergoing a spiritual crisis, while Margaret's sense of relief contrasts sharply with Varria's feelings of grief and shame. An abortion counselor also shares insights.
