Abortion: Stories from North and South
Singer, GailPublisher: National Film Board of Canada
Year Published: 1984
Pages: 55 min
Resource Type: Film/Video
Abstract: Singer's film allows us to see abortions as a global phenomenon which transcends race, religion and boundary. Women from various parts of the world share their experiences. From Ireland where contraception and abortion are illegal, to urban Peru where backstreet abortions are commonplace to Japan where women bound by ancient traditions of formality, deference and silence cannot share their experience of abortion. One of the striking points of the film is that abortion continues to be practiced despite moral and legal constraints.
