1984 | 58 min
Paul Cowan’s film captures the spirit of the legal battle over abortion waged by Dr. Henry
Morgentaler in Quebec and in federal courts between 1970 and 1976. Using a combination of newsreel footage, interviews and re-enactments, this docudrama unravels the complexities of the case that began as a challenge to Canada’s abortion laws and turned into a precedent-setting civil rights case.
THE FILM DEALS WITH MATURE SUBJECT MATTER. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
