Abort - et ensomt valg

Merete Borker, Denmark, 1996

30 min.DK/Documentary

In many cases an induced abortion is the best solution. This is the theme of the film. That the induced abortion exists and is legitimate. But nevertheless - an abortion leads to many existential thoughts and many unexpected feelings. And the choice - abortion or a baby - can be a difficult choice. In the film nine women tell about this choice. And they tell about the doubt, the powerlessness and the loneliness before - during - and after the abortion.
