Overview

More than 30 years after Roe v. Wade affirmed a woman's constitutional right to have an abortion, President George W. Bush's conservative appointments to the Supreme Court threaten to overturn the decision and filmmakers Stephen Fell and Will Thompson set out to document what many consider to be the most controversial social movement in American history. Over the course of one year, Fell and Thompson were granted unprecedented access to pro-life groups, leaders in the movement, and fundraising campaigns that are working harder than ever to reverse the Roe v. Wade decision. With college credit offered to university students who communicate the pro-life message, it seems that activists of all ages are working to outlaw abortion. As the battle to determine a woman's right to privacy rages, however, many question what it really means to win the war. Interviews with over 70 of the pro-life movement's most active proponents and captivating archival footage combine to examine the social movement that has effectively split American politics right down the middle.
