Film Documentaries and Personal Stories
12th and Delaware
By Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady Watch Online
The two sides of the abortion debate in America literally face one another in this documentary from filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady. In Fort Pierce, Florida, a women’s health center is located at the corner of 12th and Delaware. On the same corner, across the street, is another women’s health care center. However, the two centers are not in the same business; one provides abortions along with a variety of other health services, while the other primarily offers counseling to women considering abortion, urging them to keep their babies. In 12th and Delaware, Ewing and Grady offer a look inside both offices, as pro-life counselors give women a mixture of concern and disinformation about terminating their pregnancies and the pro-choice medical staff struggles to work under the frequent threat of violence against them. The film also examines the handful of protesters who stand outside the abortion clinic, confronting both patients and staff as they enter and exit.

Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa
By Sarah Diehl (DVD, 50 minutes, English/Polish with English Subtitles) Watch Online

The film reveals how the legal status of women is a direct result of the silencing or empowering of women’s voices.
