In 1983 – 10 years after Roe v. Wade – a landmark FRONTLINE documentary, “Abortion Clinic”, showed the experience of and conflict over abortion like never before on American television.
Nearly 40 years later, FRONTLINE returned to Pennsylvania to look at both sides of the abortion debate in “The Abortion Divide.”
From producers Mark Obenhaus and Elizabeth Leiter, “The Abortion Divide” offers a window into the sometimes difficult and deeply personal choices women face with unplanned pregnancy – and examines the steadfast belief of the anti-abortion community that there should be no choice at all.
