Watch LIVE: Filmmaker Tracy Droz Tragos Discusses "Abortion: Stories Women Tell"

Join filmmaker Tracy Droz Tragos on Thursday at AOL's BUILD series, as she discusses HBO's upcoming documentary "Abortion: Stories Women Tell," which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival 2016.

Watch the livestream as she talks about where we are as a nation today on the issue of abortion. Tragos' film sheds new light on the contentious issue of abortion, with a focus not on the debate, but rather on the women themselves: those struggling with unplanned pregnancies, the providers who show up at clinics to give medical care, as well as the activists on the sidewalks hoping to sway decisions and lives. By showing both sides of the issue, the film is able to focus on the personal stories these women have the strength to share with the world. At the end of the day, it is all about the power of choice.

Watch the conversation LIVE right here from AOL's headquarters in New York City on Thursday, August 12 at 12pm EST.
