Description

Jo Ardinger's moving documentary explores the national impact of personhood legislation, which establishes rights for unborn fetuses often over those of the woman carrying the child. Centered in this film is the emotional legal saga of Medford, Wisconsin, resident Tammy Loertscher, whose attempts to improve her mental and physical health upon discovering her pregnancy land her in protective custody. Her fetus is given a lawyer, but she is not granted one.
