Quotes

Himself - United Church of Christ, Planned Parenthood Advisory Board: Religion can make people crazy. It really can. And it can be wonderful, but it can also be just incredibly intolerant. All those people who shot these people at the clinics and so on, they were all religious.

User Reviews

 
History
1 October 2018 | by bsmyth-1See all my reviews

The documentary is lacking in showing history of the abortion debate prior to 1900. This is because there was NO ABORTION DEBATE prior to 1900. Abortion was safe and legal, and NO ONE CARED. This should have bee presented.
