Storyline

An abusive husband is angered that his wife is having trouble conceiving a child. One night, after leaving his house following a fight, she overdoses on pills. After bringing her to the ER to save her, the husband discovers that she was, in fact, pregnant and had lost her child in the process of attempting suicide. Distraught, he decides to sue her for "property damage" and "breach of trust", among other things. She hires her feminist friend from New York to defend her, which is a difficult task in the southern town of Newnan, Georgia, which is predominantly pro-life.

Surprisingly thoughtful commentary on abortion
31 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at how interesting this movie turned out to be. When I saw it was directed by Menahem Golon, I feared the worst. But it turned out to be very believable and realistic, given the premise that Roe Vs. Wade has been overturned some time in the future. Character development is not its strong point, but I could easily see the events in the movie occurring.

Don't watch this movie if you can't stand left wing viewpoints. Although the movie tries to skewer both the pro-choice and pro-life points of view, the pro-life folks definitely get the worst of it. The ending even contains a few unexpected twists, and the identity of the titular "Silent victim" surprised me.
