From the producer of "Anne of Green Gables":

The shocking true story of Lila and William Young, owners of the Ideal Maternity Home for unwed mothers in the 1930s and '40s. The public becomes outraged when they discover the Youngs have been secretly burying dead babies and selling healthy youngsters to childless couples.

Canada’s highest-rated television movie ever. Winner of the 1996 Gemini for Best Dramatic Movie.

Format: DVD
The Butterbox Babies is a deep film. The characters are clearly so well meaning as they start their home for unwed mothers, but slowly over the film they are corrupted by money and expedience.

You as the viewer, tend to stay sympathetic, until bit by bit you realise how corrupt they have become. You feel unclean for having sympathised with them so long. It is a heartbreaker of a movie.

It shows that the choice is not between abortion and no abortion, but between abortion and illegal abortion.

If you like real stories this is a movie for you. Takes place in Canada about a couple who start by helping these women deliver their babies and give them up for adoption. Greed takes ahold.....

There is al lot more history to the Butterbox Babies that time and format could possible allow in a film version.

The portrayal of greed and skirting the law was present at the time. Selling Canadian babies to "rich Americans" is something that that kind of got lost in the video.

This movie is about a unbelievably bad institution in Canada. The incidents horror in the movie really happened. It was a great eye opener and wonderfully filmed.
