I agree it's a good film
I wouldn't have included Thatcher though

I didn't actually realise that abortion was illegal. Did know that two doctors were needed, but never actually thought about it being illegal.

well, I think it's a bit misleading to say it's illegal- as things stand in early pregnancy a woman can easily get an abortion, simply because it will always be more risky to continue a pg than not. It IS a medical procedure with risks/benefits so I don't object to it being overseen by doctors.
I'm talking about England, Scotland and Wales of course.
The recent episode of Call the Midwife showed very clearly how much we depend on free access to safe legal abortion.
