America's War On Abortion (2020)

Deeyah Khan investigates one of the most divisive issues in American politics - abortion, going on the frontline to meet those most affected by America's abortion wars. 

This documentary goes inside abortion clinics that are under siege from fundamentalist Christian protesters, and meets the doctors who face an ever-present threat of violence, even murder, from anti-abortion fanatics.

Filmed before and during the shattering events of the coronavirus pandemic, Deeyah meets a man convicted of bombing clinics, and speaks to the women who face one of the most difficult decisions of their lives, in choosing to have an abortion.

In his time in office, Donald Trump has wooed evangelical Christian voters by enacting anti-abortion policies, and with a political battle currently raging over control of the Supreme Court, the right of American women to choose is under threat.

Deeyah deploys her uniquely intimate filming style to explore the contradictions and conflicts of her subject matter, going on the frontline to find the people most affected by America’s abortion wars.
