On October 23, 1998, a sniper carrying a high-powered rifle assassinated Dr. Barnett Slepian in his home, altering forever a family, a community, and the bounds of our imaginings about anti-abortion violence. This horrific act punctuated a decade of escalating harassment and violence against women’s heath care providers – a decade marred by murders, assaults, death threats, stalking, clinic blockades, arsons, bombings, and chemical attacks. How do these events affect the personal and professional lives of abortion providers? What motivates them to continue their work in the face of such terrorism?

This compelling film explores the issues of anti-abortion and women’s health care violence through the eyes of three dedicated U.S. abortion providers. The film puts a “human face” on abortion provision, challenging the campaign of misinformation perpetuated by the anti-abortion movement. Through the voices of sons, daughters, spouses, coworkers, and patients emerges a heartwarming portrait of committed health care professionals rooted in their families and communities and appreciated by the women they serve.
