TV Fact #391 – November 18th, 2015:

The 1992 made-for-television (HBO) drama “A Private Matter” was based on the true 1962 story of Sherri Finkbine (Played by Sissy Spacek), a resident of Phoenix, Arizona in the first trimester of her fifth pregnancy who was the popular hostess of the locally produced children’s television show “Romper Room”.

The film brought to light the noted fact that, at the time of the movie’s release, U.S. network television had shied away from stories dealing with abortion.

Film and television…it can help bring the skeletons out of the closet and force people to deal with the truth.
