Charles Boyd (Herbert Rubens) is the patriarch of the family, a sharp-tongued stock broker and an ardent pro-lifer. He and his wife, Pat (Glynis Bell), along with their uptight son, Steven (Kevin Rolston), spend their weekends protesting outside the Planned Parenthood clinic that has recently opened a few blocks from their Clayton, Missouri home. Steven’s fiancĂ©e, Mary Slade (Jennifer Laine), is not as strident in her pro-life position. But the real dissenter within the group is Steven’s older brother, Bruce (Chris Hutchison), who has bucked the family line in any number of ways: He’s moved to California, he’s got an African-American girlfriend, and he’s pro-choice. He even has the gall to refer to the clinic, so detested by the rest of his family, as a “reproductive health center” instead of an “abortion mill.”
