Dear Renee,

First Run / Icarus Films has several excellent films about Abortion. The
following four are a good start (click on the URL for full description or
see www.frif.com):

CASTING THE FIRST STONE focuses on six women who regularly confront each
other from opposite sides of a police barricade. "If you can use only one
film or tape about abortion, this is the one to choose." - Professor
Virginia Yans McGlaughlin, Rutgers University
http://frif.com/cat97/a-e/casting_.html

THE ABORTION PILL
"Well-balanced portrait of this long-time debate, including clips with the
pill's inventor, the executive director of Operation Rescue, former FDA
director David Kessler, and the president of the Population Council, which
now holds the drug's patent." - Video Librarian
http://frif.com/new2002/abo.html

DEAR DR. SPENCER
"Perfect for eliciting debate and discussion on abortion rights and related
issues." - Booklist
http://frif.com/new99/drspence.html

LIVE FREE OR DIE
"Etches a sympathetic portrait of a dedicated physician committed to
comprehensive women's health care and practical sex education, regardless
of the continual threats against his livelihood and well-being. A
compelling documentary." - Booklist

"This video should be seen by medical societies, hospital boards, and
hospital staffs. It should also prove of interest to those concerned about
the marked decline in physicians performing abortions throughout the United
States... A somber, serious film." - Journal of the American Medical
Association
