(not sure if here is the right forum)

Did anybody watch this last night.

I don't wan't to open the Abortion debate, but the programme was pretty tough to watch in parts, granted one could argue it was necessary to show what happens as much as possible.

Also, did anybody think that they were hugely biased... They didn't even seem to want to show both sides of the argument.

Anybody else have opinions on this??

I saw it, and I've had one, I couldn't watch the very graphic bits and covered my eyes when they were showing the footage that hadn't been shown before, but I have to say, I thought it was very well done and very informative.

It certainly was informative, and what it tried to accomplish, it accomplished well.

I just think it was very one-sided, I don't think it worked as a piece of balanced journalism. That said, it opened my eyes to facts I wasn't previously aware of, so in that respect I'm glad I watched it!

I tuned into this about a half hour in when the doctor was doing an abortion. I had to turn it off after a half an hour. Very hard stuff to watch when we've just had a baby 4 months ago. I can't belive they are doing abortions up to 26 weeks. That's madness!!!!!

It did start to seem very biased when they kept returning to the issue about when pain kicks in. It was near the end of the programme before they mentioned that 90% of abortions take place before 8 or 10 weeks.

I thought the mother of two using phrases like "I supposes" "maybe" was starting to make it look like one of those Sky One programmes where they drag out Z list celebs to comment on A list celebs. They just put words in her mouth.

Yes, I did watch it.
The graphic footage was made and used by the anti abortion lobby in america.
Yes it was very one sided.

C4 seem to take a side on some of there programs rather than be impartial. Makes for a more emotional show I suppose.

Is dispatches repeated?

It was very biased.

There was one part in particular where a guy doing 4D scans pointed out that the 20 week old fetus was crying. When the scan had just shown it move its hand over its face. At least they pulled him up on that sh*t, but otherwise it was very heavy handed.

Yes it clearly had an agenda how they dealth with the reps from bpas when considering the emotional and the women distress of the women who present for 23 week terminations was very telling.

Think you can watch it on some channel 4 on demand thing. Don't know if it's gonna be repeated...

Moosejam, I'm not sure what your going for there.
