A still from “Abortion: Stories Women Tell.”

Abortion remains one of the most polarizing issues in America today. In a new documentary called “Abortion: Stories Women Tell,” award-winning director Tracy Droz Tragos shines a different light on the contentious topic.

Instead of focusing on the debate, the film opens an intimate window on the lives of women who seek an abortion — as well as on the providers of their medical care and the activists on both sides of the issue hoping to sway decisions and lives — at the Hope Clinic in Granite City, Ill.
