35 Years Worth Of Stuggling With Roe V. Wade

I posted on this back in October of last year and thought I would repost it due to today being the 35th year since the courts have ruled to tip their hats to women seeking abortion. Who would have thought that 35 years later, our nation would still be fighting over Roe v. Wade.
A recent film that is on limited release in the U.S. by filmmaker Tony Kaye, known for American History X, attempts to show both sides of the abortion argument. Here is a quote from the article below.One scene depicts a doctor sifting through a surgical tray after performing a late-term abortion, where the grisly residue of an arm, a foot and part of a face can be clearly made out."It's about as shocking as any motion picture can ever get. It's illegal to film someone being killed," said Kaye.They may be the kind of images used by anti-abortion activists, but Kaye also doesn't shy from showing pictures of a kneeling and bent-over naked woman who died after performing a botched abortion on herself with a wire coat hanger.

You can see the trailer here.

Some questions:
-Would you watch this film?
-What are your thoughts on abortion?
-If you have watched it, did it change your views on abortion?

Good rhetorical question.
Would it change someones mind?
