12th & Delaware is a documentary film produced by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, released in 2010. It is set in a small town in Florida where a crisis pregnancy center and an abortion clinic are located directly across the street from each other on 12th and Delaware. The crisis pregnancy center, named the Pregnancy Care Center, is run by pro-life activists who try to convince pregnant women to choose life for their unborn babies. The center is designed to look like a medical facility with signs that display "Free Pregnancy Tests" and "Free Ultrasounds," but the staff are not medical professionals, and they provide false information about the risks of abortion and contraception.

On the other side of the street, the Aware Woman Center for Choice provides abortion services and reproductive healthcare to women. The center is under constant threat of protests from pro-life activists who stand outside, trying to intimidate women and doctors.

The film follows the stories of the staff and patients of both facilities, including a teenage girl who is pregnant and considering her options, a childless couple hoping to adopt, and a doctor who has been working at the abortion clinic for over 20 years.

Through interviews and footage shot over the course of several months, the filmmakers provide a glimpse into the incredibly divisive issue of abortion, and how it affects people's lives. The film portrays the two facilities as opposing sides of an ideological war that has been fought for decades, offering a stark contrast between those who see abortion as murder and those who see it as a necessary and legal medical procedure.

One of the key themes of the film is the ethical dilemma facing the crisis pregnancy center staff. They have a genuine desire to help women, but some of their methods involve deception and coercion. The film raises important questions about the ethics of manipulating vulnerable women and the line between protecting life and imposing personal beliefs onto others.

The film also highlights the impact of the abortion debate on women's lives. Women who seek abortions are often shamed and guilted by society, and the film portrays the courage and strength of women who are forced to navigate this challenging environment.

Overall, 12th & Delaware is a thought-provoking and emotionally powerful film that provides a nuanced look at the abortion debate. It humanizes the individuals on both sides of the issue and demonstrates the complexity of an issue that is often reduced to black and white. The film invites its audience to think critically about their own beliefs and assumptions, and challenges them to consider the experiences of those who hold opposing views.

12th & Delaware is a 2010 documentary with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.3.
