With a witty, voice-over narration, this short explores the history of the United States as a democracy, founded on personal choice, and guaranteeing its citizens the pursuit of happiness. The argument is framed to explore the pros and cons of allowing abortion, contrasting an immigrant Chinese family, the Lees, with the Adams family, descended of a Founding Father. Beside the Adams and Lee families are frogs, nature's cold-blooded harbinger of climate change, environmental disaster, and loveless reproduction. Will the independent spirit of the American republic - with its trust in individual choice - triumph? Written by
