For a network documentary, this was extremely well done. It was honest, real, and ultimately revealed the truth. Who was Norma McCorvey? She was a human being - complicated and nice in various ways. When I looked into her eyes as a middle-aged woman, I still saw an abused tiny girl. And although she was an adult and fully responsible for her questionable actions, even the evangelical pro-life group that exploited her admitted that they knew what they were doing. Charming and funny, it reveals her real identity, from the girl who was the love of her life, to her kids and grandchildren. This was not a documentary meant to stir up the politics on one side or the another - it was a real and necessary work of journalism. Sweeping aside what gotta have been a lifetime of tabloid attention and a hero mainstream media didn't quite know what to create of, it illuminates in unbelievable simplicity a girl that leaves a legacy by pure chance. Personally, I found it to be wonderful.
I won't call these folks "trash people" but you end up being conflicted with everybody involved in this storyline - - which does create the documentary intriguing. At one mission McCorvey tells "you can't con a con" and that's what everybody in the documentary is.
Why is it important to disparage the folks that made the film because of the content when you don't accept with it? After all you wanted to watch the film in the first zone and had to know what you were in for, is it their fault that history happened this way? Hold your private opinions or religious and political beliefs to yourself when reviewing movies, just review the film like your supposed to please.
