Abortion: The a Word: Real Women, Tough Choices, Personal Freedom
The A Word: Real Women, Tough Choices, Personal Freedom is about a woman's right to choose for herself. The majority of Americans, over sixty percent, support a woman's right to choose. But few women of childbearing age can remember life before Roe v. Wade, when terminating an unwanted pregnancy was a criminal offense often performed at great risk to the woman's health. People don't fully grasp the extent of the consequences; if they don't act now, the bad old days will return. The A Word focuses on those bad old days, and what we can do to prevent the loss of women's hard won rights.
