Fine job of presenting the issues
22 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a television movie, it was very forthright and honest, didn't flinch from any of the elements of abortion.

Lisa, a college girl, returns home to visit the folks, worried sick because she finds herself pregnant. What is she going to do? She's even considering an abortion. Who can she turn to, who understands her anguish?

Much to her surprise, that person is ::SPOILER:: her own mother, Kate, and not even 20 years ago, but just last year. We relive Kate's journey as she makes her own decision, every step of the way. ::

This movie could be made today (except for the clothes!) as it seems we have not progressed at all and are still fighting the same issues, and have resolved very little.
