TRAPPED

A FILM BY DAWN PORTER

Across America, but particularly in the South, abortion clinics are in a fight for their existence. Since 2010, legislators across America vowing to make their states "abortion free" have introduced hundreds of anti-choice bills. Caught in the political quagmire are millions of women of reproductive age, many of them poor and uninsured. Their only hope? The men and women fighting to fulfill the protections guaranteed by Roe v. Wade.
