The latest film in the PBS independent non-fiction series P.O.V. (Point of View) airs tonight. Live Free or Die follows the life of Dr. Wayne Goldner, a Bedford, New Hampshire, obstetrician who provides surgical abortions as part of his practice. His decision ignites controversy, bringing anti-choice protestors to the small town and striking fear in Goldner’s family when they learn of the murder of Dr. Barnett Slepian near Buffalo, NY. This film depicts the daily struggles doctors who provide abortion services must endure and their heroic efforts to keep abortions safe and legal.
