The Coat Hanger Project is a documentary film about abortion and the current state of the reproductive justice/pro-choice movement. Before the legalization of abortion in 1973 in the United States, thousands of women died from complications resulting from botched illegal abortions. Currently, the Guttmacher Institute estimates that 60,000 – 80,000 women worldwide die annually from unsafe abortions. An additional 5,000,000 women suffer permanent or temporary injury. This film is a grave reminder that safe, convenient, LEGAL access to abortion is a matter of life or death for women.
