TV correspondent here again to let you know of a new drama that was really good and worth a watch 

Three families started on bbc last night three part 

It is about different families for different reasons making the difficult decisions about abortion  in Northern Ireland when it was illegal and the fight to change the law

    Yes watched last 1 tonight, just finished, it was good looking at different reasons for abortions and the difficulties the families had. Even tho alot has changed in Northern Ireland  regarding this, a lot of women still, have to travel to England.

    Well that blew me away, my god what those women had to go through, woman’s body she has to be considered, this day and age it’s disgusting that they still have to come to England, they put down to religion, but I don’t think God would agree with, I believe in life but if quality of life is not there then the humane thing is to let them go ☹️ If our pets are in pain we let them go. But humans can’t ????

    Thanks for flagging this one @janer1967

    I haven't had chance to watch it yet. But I've just had a quick read of some of the other reviews. Elsewhere, they've called it 'a sensitive, enraging exposé. That speaks volumes about the subject-matter, I suppose. Definitely worth a watch.
