If These Walls Could Talk is a 1996 Golden Globe and Emmy Award-nominated made for television movie, broadcast on HBO. It follows the plights of three different women and their experiences with abortion. Each of the three stories takes place in the same house in three different years: 1952, 1974, and 1996. All three segments were co-written by Nancy Savoca. Savoca directed the first and second segment while Cher directed the third. The womens’ experiences in each vignette are designed to demonstrate the popular views of society on the issue in each of the given decades. The film became a surprise success, and was HBO’s highest rated movie ever.

Claire Donnelly est une jeune veuve de guerre Barbara Barrows est mère d’une famille nombreuse. Cristina Anez est étudiante. Toutes trois, chacune à leur époque, affrontent les préjugés, les interdits, et se battent. Dans quel but ? Parce qu’elles choisissent de ne pas garder l’enfant qui pourrait naître. Contre la société, contre les lois, contre la violence de certains militants anti-avortement, Claire, Barbara et Cristina mettent leurs existence en péril.. Poignant, bouleversant, émouvant…. il n’y a pas d’autres mots pour décrire ce film courageux, partagé entre le passé et le présent. Un film mené comme un thriller, avec un suspense haletant, et animé par trois stars aussi convaincantes que belles.

1952
The 1952 segment deals with Claire Donnelly (Demi Moore), a widowed nurse living in suburban Chicago, who becomes pregnant by her brother-in-law and decides to undergo abortion in order not to hurt her late husband’s family. However, abortion at the time is strictly illegal. Donnelly eventually finds another nurse (CCH Pounder) who provides her the name of a woman who can find her someone who will perform the abortion. She finally manages to abort, but dies shortly after due to hemorrhage.
1974
The 1974 segment deals with Barbara Barrows (Sissy Spacek), a struggling and aging mother with four children, who discovers she must welcome another addition to the family, despite having recently gone back to college. She considers abortion with the support of her teenage daughter (Hedy Burress) but ultimately chooses to keep the child.
1996
The 1996 segment deals with Christine Cullen (Anne Heche), a college student who got pregnant by a married professor, decides on an abortion when he breaks up with her and only offers her money. After consulting with her roommate (Jada Pinkett), she makes an appointment with Dr. Beth Thompson (Cher). However, the abortion takes place during a violent protest, and an anti-abortion protester (Matthew Lillard) walks in on the operation and shoots Dr. Thompson.
