- Documentary Video and Discussion "Deciding Vote"St. Louis County Library–Mid-County Branch, St. Louis, MO
New York state was one of the first to legalize abortion before Roe vs Wade, and consequently became a sanctuary for women from all over the US. Passage of the key legislation depended on the vote of a conflicted legislator, George Michaels. This documentary explores his moral dilemma. Our video, from the New Yorker Web site, is only about twenty minutes long, so we will have plenty of time for discussion, including how our suit (with the National Women's Law Center) against Missouri fits with the current initiative petitions.
