Well...problem is, the anti-abortion works out there are pretty damn grim
and hysterical...often produced by fundamentalist Christian groups (eg
Massacre of Innocence and The Silent Scream).

As far as other stuff, I like

The Fragile Promise of Choice: Abortion in the United States Today.
                    Vignettes from around the United States, news footage
and interviews
                    combine to show how restrictive legislation, funding
cutbacks, violence
                    against clinics, and the political successes of the
Pro-life movement is
                    affecting abortion's availability and how activists and
clinicians are working
                    to preserve access to abortion. 1996. 57 min.   Women
Make Movies

When Abortion was Illegal: Untold Stories.
                    Presents a portrait of the times before Roe v. Wade
when profound social
                    stigma surrounded both abortion and unwed motherhood.
Makes a strong
                    case for choice as a fundamental democratic right.
1992. 28 min. Video/C
                    2884  Women Make Movies

Casting the First Stone.
                    This documentary attempts, by means of interviews with
both proponents
                    and opponents of abortion in a Pennsylvania town, to
show some of the
                    differences in the ways people weight the value of
human life. c1991. 58

Hi Renee

Well...problem is, the anti-abortion works out there are pretty damn grim and hysterical...often produced by fundamentalist Christian groups (eg Massacre of Innocence and The Silent Scream).

As far as other stuff, I like

The Fragile Promise of Choice: Abortion in the United States Today.
                   Vignettes from around the United States, news footage and interviews
                   combine to show how restrictive legislation, funding cutbacks, violence
                   against clinics, and the political successes of the Pro-life movement is
                   affecting abortion's availability and how activists and clinicians are working
                   to preserve access to abortion. 1996. 57 min.   Women Make Movies

When Abortion was Illegal: Untold Stories.
                   Presents a portrait of the times before Roe v. Wade when profound social
                   stigma surrounded both abortion and unwed motherhood. Makes a strong
                   case for choice as a fundamental democratic right. 1992. 28 min. Video/C
                   2884  Women Make Movies

Casting the First Stone.
                   This documentary attempts, by means of interviews with both proponents
                   and opponents of abortion in a Pennsylvania town, to show some of the
                   differences in the ways people weight the value of human life. c1991. 58
