Season 8 of 'Call the Midwife' Features an Emotional Botched Abortion Storyline


The PBS series Call the Midwife is once again tackling the controversial topic of abortion. On the Season 8 premiere, which aired in the U.S. on March 31, Nurse Valerie Dyer helped a woman named Cath who was suffering a miscarriage following a backstreet abortion. 

"I don’t care how this has come about, I’m going to help you, do you hear me?" Valerie told Cath. Actress Jennifer Kirby, who plays the dedicated nurse, teased that this storyline is far from over.
