Director Statement

In “San Francisco Cowboy”, I seek to create awareness that abortion rights are important to young women. When you are a pregnant teenager and lack the education and guidance in life, you are bringing into the world a human being which will not be of full potential. It’s better to abort the baby because you are not providing a suitable environment for the newborn to become a decent human being.
The character Paris finds herself in just that situation when she was a teenager. Teenage pregnancy destroys her life as she makes a wrong decision at a pivotal moment in her educational and social development. She resorts to prostitution as her only means of survival. In the spirit of “Taxi Driver” the film explores teenage prostitution and abortion in today’s San Francisco.
