New Dialogue: Americans on Abortion
Series Description

Anthology series of independent productions which deal with a variety of topics: social commentary, American history, politics, health, environment, etc. Series release date: 1992

Program Description

This program presents reaction to P.O.V.'s film "Leona's Sister Gerri." Viewers from all over the country, who screened the program earlier this year, voice their reactions. The dialogue is notable for being thoughtful and nonconfrontational; it is also considerably more complex than the usual media representations of the abortion debate. The program includes a synopsis and brief excerpts from "Leona" so that viewers who didn't see the film know what it's about.
