1960's melodrama
17 January 2016 | by stilljill-1See all my reviews

This takes place before Roe V Wade, and abortion on demand became legal. The parameters for acquiring an abortion were very narrow. To save the life of the mother or the possibility of a suicide attempt, were about the only legal reasons allowed for abortion. A 15 year old girl, who is perfect in every way, becomes emotional and irrational. Then it's discovered she's pregnant. Her parents are mortified and attempt to have her declared too emotionally vulnerable to give birth, so she can have an "operation". The Dr. might not agree to go along with the parents and the girl wants to keep her child. Lots of drama, mean classmates and gossipy neighbors. Probably very realistic in the way things were handled back in the day.
