Excellent & riveting movie !!
25 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was EXCELLENT......of course I am a woman with a thankful knowing that we need a pro-choice court system.......to protect womens health rights. This movie is an excellent depiction of the grim possibilities without such protection. The closing speech Any Garcia makes is remarkable & TRUE!! Our country is in a sad state when the Catholic idea logy seeks to control and deprive women of their right to their own choice about their health and child bearing. Our country is founded on FREEDOMS.of speech.and our right to our own personal choice to bear or not bear children would remain our personal right. Other are not forced to have an abortion...why do they seek to stop those who do??? I'm looking to by a copy !!
