Planned Parenthood Demonstration

Mike went down to a demonstration outside Planned Parenthood on Saturday morning. He spoke with a lot of people demonstrating for a lot of reasons, and the resulting video is a mini-documentary of those reasons. This video is mostly about conversation rather than politics or crowd shots. People from many perspectives speak to us, sharing the difficult and emotional issues surrounding abortion rights and legality. The conversation does not end here.



The runtime is about 10.5 minutes

Mike - great job showing two sides of this issue in a fair, intelligent way. I think many people making videos about this would go with a political message and back up their side. I think you did a great job presenting different opinions.

Mike is pretty amazing at interviewing almost anyone he runs into and making them feel comfortable with his questioning. I have to admit, even though I would personallly identify on the pro-choice side, it was hard to make a lot of these specific pro-choicers look coherant in editing compared to their older and more wizened pro-life counterparts. I'm happy to hear that you felt the video presented different opinions fairly.
