These are some of the words women used to describe their feelings about abortion in Cut Video’s powerful new short, “One Word: Abortion (Women).”
The production team, known for its popular “100 Years of Beauty” series, recruited women between the ages of 15 and 50 to participate in a word association experiment.
All were asked to respond to the same word — "abortion" — by saying the first thing that came into their heads.
The women were also asked to briefly explain their responses.
The three-and-a-half-minute video is powerful and enlightening: The opinions about reproductive rights proved as diverse as the women themselves.
