In 1983 - 10 years after Roe v. Wade - a landmark FRONTLINE documentary, Abortion Clinic, showed the experience of and conflict over abortion like never before on American television.
Now, 36 years later, FRONTLINE returns to Pennsylvania to look at both sides of the abortion debate in The Abortion Divide.
