LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The largest issue, aside from killing innocent babies, facing women who feel the need to terminate their unborn children is the alarming number of doctors claiming there are no side-effects of undergoing the horrific procedure.

Directors Punam Kumar Gill, Drew Martin and Joses Martin all agreed the abortion industry denies negative effects, whether they be physical or psychological, when a woman chooses to kill her child.

Near the end of the documentary, one doctor explains the main purpose of the film is a debate, "not on the morality of abortion, but on the morality of telling the truth about it."

Gill has always believed women had the right to choose to kill their unborn children, but wanted to dig deeper into the abortion industry and whether women, or the general public, really have access to all the information they need before making such a life-changing decision.

For Gill, an answer to the question is a personal one as she suffered a late-term miscarriage and recently learned it may have affected her risk of contracting breast cancer.

The documentary begins with Gill watching media reports on abortion, then she travels to various scientific organizations to speak to experts.

Interestingly, no one is willing to talk to her, even at the National Cancer Institute, where she was escorted off the premises by a security guard.

The HUSH documentary reveals the truth behind abortion.

In one instance, a question concerning the link between abortion and cancer was immediately shut down.

Most of the film focuses on the link between abortions and breast cancer, though it also includes physical and mental health stories following the procedure.

When Drew Martin set out to learn the truth, he explained: "Nobody wanted to talk to us because they assumed the worst. Even with individuals who are not particularly related (to abortion issues), like cancer organizations, what do they have to do with abortions, in general?

"But when it comes to a political topic like this...there's a lot of defensiveness that we didn't expect."

Though Gill went into the project pro-choice, she has since learned much about the psychological and physical links between women's health and abortion. Her renewed understanding has altered her opinions for the better.

Overall, "HUSH" discovered links between abortions and difficulties conceiving later, birth and health defects in children when mothers abort, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and more - none of which are mentioned to women about to undergo the procedure.

Since its completion, "HUSH" has been aired at several festivals and multiple universities.

Filmmakers continue to spread the documentary to as many people as possible to teach women how their decisions have serious repercussions, whether those consequences are immediate or not.
