BROKEN JUSTICE is the true story about Dr. Ken Edelin, a young, black doctor who arrived in Boston in 1971 to do his residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Boston City Hospital. In January of 1975, he was put on trial for murder – the charge resulting from an abortion he had performed on a 17-year-old girl – before a jury that was all white, predominantly male, and overwhelmingly Catholic. The dynamic confluences of race, sex, and revenge played out in a Boston courtroom during the six-week trial. With recent Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights, BROKEN JUSTICE is important reading for pro-choicers and pro-lifers alike.
