Abortion portrayal

Lucifurs (film)


Lucifurs is the name of a fur salon. Karla Maxwell, an animal rights activist, breaks up with her boyfriend when she finds out that his family owns this salon. Shortly after, she learns that she is pregnant. She has an abortion but then witnesses her doctor getting murdered. She becomes involved with the investigating detective and goes undercover in order to help him solve the crime. Karla befriends the suspect and works her way into his world of anti-abortion extremists. Eventually, she hatches a scheme where she sets him up to be caught by the police. With her help, he blows up a building that he thinks is an abortion clinic. Instead, it turns out to be Lucifurs.
