I think there needs to be a third but about international abortion.


I feel there needs to be a third about abortion in other countries. In Russia (former Soviet Union) there was a time when the average woman had 9 abortions, largely due to the lack of birth control. Japan, where birth control (the pill) only has been legal for about 12 years. Not only did women have to turn to abortion but had to raise the funds to obtain one due to the cost (around $800). Then I would go to Africa where 76% of women die from illegal abortions. Then just touch on countries like Norway where abortion rates are low due to free birth control. Then Mexico, where illegal abortions happen but a lower death rate.

Stop the war on women!

I think the 3rd one should be about domestic violence.

I agree too re the domestic violence. Each movie had a different issue.
