In conversation with Carol Vontobel (behind the camera) and Nancy Cain, Mary Curtis Ratcliff describes getting her first legal abortion soon after the state of New York legalised the procedure in 1970. Curtis supplies details of the cost of abortions at the Women’s Medical Center in NYC, versus clinics such as Planned Parenthood, as well as a play-by-play account of her experience.
