An excerpt of a longer documentary in which 12 women share their experiences with abortion. www.theabortiondiaries.com
Producer/Director Penny Lane.
The women are doctors, subway workers, artists, activists, military personnel, teachers and students; they are Black, Latina , Jewish and White; they are mothers or child-free; they range in age from 19 to 54. Their stories weave together with the filmmaker’s diary entries to present a compelling, moving and at times surprisingly funny “dinner party” where the audience is invited to hear what women say behind closed doors about motherhood, medical technology, sex, spirituality, love, work and their own bodies.
