The Miracle of Life - The "Flying A" film studio in Santa Barbara created this controversial ground-breaking movie on the subject of abortion in 1915. In the film, a young married woman is unhappy to discover that she is pregnant. She is reluctant to give up her present lifestyle, and so obtains a medication that induces miscarriages.


This film paved the way for a similar movie called Where Are My Children? that was released in 1916.
