Video: A Look at Whether 40 Years of Legal Abortion Has Made Us Better

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/12/14 - updated on 06/08/17

"The 40 Film" examines where we are as a nation since Roe vs. Wade

Last December, a documentary called "The 40 Film" premiered at the Pickwick Theatre in suburban Chicago. Director and producer John Morales wanted to examine the question of whether we are better or worse off since Roe vs. Wade. Narrated by actress Jennifer Cadena, the documentary features over 40 pro-life activists, leaders, and youth, as well as pro-choice voices and their central arguments. It’s available on DVD from Ignatius Press.
