Last Friday, HBO Documentary Films released Abortion: Stories Women Tell in six U.S. cities. The film aims to shed "new light on the contentious issue with a focus not on the debate, but rather on the women themselves."

"The production and promotion behind Abortion: Stories Women Tell is a disturbing attempt to glamorize abortion into the mainstream of American culture," said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. 

"In reality, when a woman is facing an unexpected pregnancy she might believe that abortion will 'erase' the life of her growing child and thereby solve her problems. But the truth is that once life is conceived it can't be erased—but it can be destroyed through abortion. Countless women profoundly regret having made such a choice. Abortion advocates have moved steadily away from the mantra 'safe, legal and rare' to 'unlimited, without apology and paid for by tax dollars.' Women will bear the emotional and physical costs of this calculated effort to try to normalize a sad, violent, and unnatural procedure. Hopefully viewers will walk away with that in mind but pitting the reality of that suffering against 'positive' abortion stories is a dubious muddling of the truth."
