Forty-five years after it revolutionized abortion law in America, the landmark 1973 US Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade is once again at a crossroads. REVERSING ROE offers a deeply illuminating look of the state of abortion and women’s rights in America.
The film offers candid and riveting interviews with key figures from both sides of the divide, among them doctors Colleen McNicholas and Curtis Boyd; feminist icon Gloria Steinhem; Operation Rescue president Troy Neuman; and National Right to Life president Carol Tobias.
Intense and unflinching in its commitment to telling the whole story, REVERSING ROE offers a gripping look at what’s happening on the ground in 2018, and a comprehensive review of the years that led us here. Drawing from a wealth of historical footage, it charts the period leading up to the Roe decision—and documents the opposition that has followed ever since.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue of abortion, REVERSING ROE is essential viewing to understand how the country got here—and where it may be going.
