Not Yet Rain: : Ethiopian Women Struggle to Obtain Safe Abortions

Every year, millions of women around the world risk their lives to end unintended pregnancies. Not Yet Rain, a 23-minute short film by Lisa Russell, produced in association with Ipas (a nongovernmental organization dedicated to preventing deaths and disabilities from unsafe abortions), explores abortion in Ethiopia through the voices of women who have faced the challenge of finding safe care, even though the country has one of Africa's most progressive abortion laws. Through their stories, we see the important role that safe abortion care plays in the overall health of women and their families.
