FRONTLINE: The Abortion Divide In 1983 - 10 years after Roe v. Wade - a landmark FRONTLINE documentary, Abortion Clinic, showed the experience of and conflict over abortion like never before on American television.
Now, 36 years later, FRONTLINE returns to Pennsylvania to look at both sides of the abortion debate in The Abortion Divide. This film offers a window into the sometimes difficult and deeply personal choices women face with unplanned pregnancy - and examines the steadfast belief of the anti-abortion community that there should be no choice at all.
Through inside accounts from providers, patients and activists, The Abortion Divide documents the changes in abortion procedures and practices - and illustrates the reality that the battle over abortion in America seems to be far from over.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
