    Through interviews with people whose mothers died due to complications from abortion before its legalization, this video examines the tragedy of deaths from illegal abortions and the trauma of losing a mother at a young age. Social and historical context for these emotionally powerful interviews is provided by a physician who treated hundreds of women dying from septic abortions and a medical historian, who discuss the medical, legislative and social history of abortion from the late nineteenth century until its legalization in 1973.
