An ABC documentary series, “Toughest Jobs”, recently aired an episode that took a sensitive and thought provoking look at abortion in Australia. Maddie Parry interviews staff and patients at a Dr Marie Clinic in Melbourne, to understand the procedures, and people’s opinions on this emotional topic. This is a moving journey, as the viewer is given the opportunity to hear women from many different circumstances talk about such a vulnerable and personal experience.
The episode titled “Maddie Parry: Inside the Clinic” is available on ABC iView until December 16.
Marie Stopes International Australia has also released a video discussing the reasons they wanted to participate in the documentary, which can be seen here.
