We need to remember
25 October 1999 | by Adrian-34See all my reviews

This documentary was very well put together; probably one of the best which I have seen, particularly on the subject. However, I still felt that a little more depth could have been taken at times, with some of the ladies featured. Though considering the delicate nature of the subject I can readily assume as well as understand where it may have been the subjects themselves who were holding back rather than the host.

The documentary highlights several women from various times of the history of abortion, discusses their experiences, decisions and the over-all effect all of these things has had on their lives. I think it serves as a decent reminder of the struggles which women have had to endure throughout the history of abortion and that we need to remember and learn from that history as well.
