A feminist perspective on the history and methods of contraception and women’s access to free abortions. It features a fictionalized account of three women and their relationship to abortion; contrasts the history of contraceptives to the cycles of manpower demands in a Capitalist society; and speaks about contraceptives as a more or less adequate result of male research but for which women are responsible. Abortion can be a necessity, and if it's done in an illegal way, it can lead to severe injuries. For these women the first step to liberation is through consciousness.
