The Coat Hanger Project

Keep Abortion Legal. No exceptions. No apologies

The Coat Hanger Project is a documentary that analyzes the pro-choice/reproductive justice movement at a time when the first generation of men and women who have never known illegal abortion are coming into power and awareness.
