"Underneath the din of politicians posturing about "life" and "choice" and beyond the shouted slogans about murder and rights, there are real stories of real women who have had abortions. Each year in the US, 1.3 million abortions occurr, but the topic is still so stigmatized it's never discussed in polite company. Powerful, poignant, and firecely honest, I HAD AN ABORTION tackles this taboo, featuring 10 women — including famed feminist Gloria Steinem — who candidly describe experiences spanning seven decades, from the years before Roe v. Wade to the present day. Filmmakers Jennifer baumgardner (author of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future) and Gillian Aldrich insightfully document how changing societal pressures have affected women's choices and experiences." - Women Make Movies
