A recent PBS “Frontline” documentary on the abortion debate in the U.S. was a tour de force in traditional journalism, and the result is stunning.

Producers tell the story with balance and respect, by including perspectives from all sides of the debate, as well as startling footage of the abortion process — including surgical and medical abortions — that informs viewers without telling them what to think. They anchor the film in the current political debate, but carefully avoid choosing sides. No side of the debate is glossed over, dismissed or downplayed.
