Women's Forum Australia is pleased to bring you 'Hush' a groundbreaking new documentary that explores the issue of abortion from a uniquely pro-woman perspective.

What is the impact of abortion on a woman's health? Are there long-term psychological and physical impacts? Is there a link between abortion and breast cancer? Does having an abortion increase the risk of pre-term births in subsequent pregnancies?

'Hush' has been on the film festival circuit since its world premiere at the LA Femme International Film Festival and picked up the Golden Award at the World Documentary Awards in 2015 and Best Documentary at the Life Fest Film Festival along with multiple other awards screenings.
