Ah, December 31st. The end of another year. The day on which your newsfeed will be flooded with reflections, photos of everyone’s year and the goals they have for the coming months.

Last month, I had an evening to myself (I’m as shocked as you) so I decided to peruse iPlayer for something to watch. I love a good documentary or anything based on true events, so when I saw Abortion on Trial pop up, I was instantly intrigued.
