Summary:
The case of Susan Smith, a young mother who drowned her sons in South Carolina, repelled and fascinated the whole nation. Amidst all the uproar it is interesting to note that Newt Gingrich claimed the tragedy was the inevitable outcome of years of liberal control of Congress. Motherhood on Trial challenges viewers to examine current conservative thinking that blames the breakdown of the traditional family for causing crime, poverty, illiteracy, teenage pregnancy and other problems.
