Season 1: Episode 12

A decade after Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on abortion, FRONTLINE went to an abortion clinic in Pennsylvania. First broadcast in April 1983, Abortion Clinic followed the individual journeys of women dealing with unplanned pregnancies, and interviewed the people who worked inside the clinic and members of the community who protested outside it.
