    Each year, an estimated 30 to 55 million women throughout the world obtain induced abortions. More than half of these abortions are illegal and an estimated 84,000 of them result in death. This cross-cultural survey shows how abortion transcends race, religion and social class, and how differences in the practice and perception of abortion are mainly in the degree of secrecy and danger accompanying it. Featuring interviews filmed in Ireland, Japan, Thailand, Peru, Colombia and Canada, the film lends a voice to women throughout the world.
