Well made but significantly flawed documentary
30 November 2001 | by (Newark, DE) – See all my reviews

This documentary, purported to show how violence and harassment has driven abortion providers away, instead uses innuendo and selective editing to portray a non-violent abortion abolitionist group in a negative light. Although this group is never shown doing anything other than singing, praying and peacefully picketing, the words "terrorist" and "terrorism" are used throughout the film to describe them. The abortion issue is difficult to portray through the lens of reason, and this documentary fails to do so.
