what going on?
Three pregnant women are kidnapped from abortion clinics and held for seven months until they all give birth. Seven years later, those who held the women have been arrested, admitting to their deeds. They have been brought to trial, and now the jury deliberates their fate. The kidnappers had video-taped the entire seven months that the women were held. In essence, during the trial the jurors had something presented to them that is so rare in the criminal justice system: they were able to watch the entire alleged crime as it unfolded… And what they ultimately learned – and will discuss in their deliberations – is that everyone involved in the matter (even two of the supposed kidnapped women) were conspirators in the alleged offense… Only one woman had actually been kidnapped… All the others were caught and tried… But did they actually commit a crime by holding this one woman for seven months – and saving the baby’s life? All jurors immediately vote guilty-except one… What ensues is a jury room battle, where the lone juror tries to convince the others that no crime has been committed. That life was preserved and that there would be no justice in convicting those who held her. It’s a daunting task because the others believe that the law is cut and dry. There was indeed a kidnapping… But is holding a woman against her will – to prevent an abortion – actually a crime? Twelve Angry Men and Women examines this incredibly divisive issue
