This film documents the extraordinary life and work of Bertram Wainer, a doctor who fought to make abortion accessible, affordable and safe in Melbourne in the late 1960s. Dr Wainer risked his life to uncover a web of corruption involving abortionists, politicians and police.

This is the first week of upper house debate in the Victorian Parliament on the current draft abortion legislation. Speakers Liz Patterson and Kimberley Yu will also look at the current campaign to decriminalise abortion in Victoria and why abortion, a fundamental human right, is still denied to many women around the world.

Presented by Resistance and Student Housing Action Co-operative (SHAC). Contact Liz Turner 0402 657 392 or Trent Hawkins 0407 070 841
