Synopsis

Ever since Roe v. Wade, the United States has been deeply divided on the issue of abortion. In that landmark case, an unmarried woman was refused an abortion in Texas. The judicial challenge that followed won women the right to legal abortions. Proponents and opponents have lined up on either side of the issue ever since, launching verbal abuse--and worse--at each other. As the religious right has increasingly flexed its power, the issue has become even more divisive - and violent. Here, the viewer gains a greater understanding of what motivates each side.
