Summary
"Based on a true story, Dangerous Remedy tells the fascinating story of Dr Bertram Wainer. Living and working in Melbourne in the 1960s, Dr Wainer put his life at risk to expose police corruption in an effort to change the law on abortion and put an end to the illegal operations that were killing young women. When Dr Wainer is called out to tend to the daughter of old friends who is dying as a result of a backyard abortion, performed in filthy conditions, he is angry. This should not have happened. He vows to take a stand against the forces that allow this dangerous industry to thrive. The law must be changed to allow access to safe abortion, but can one man make a difference? Wainer is an ordinary citizen who finds himself in an extraordinary situation where his life and those of the people around him are threatened when he tries to change the status quo"--ABC-TV website
