Film Screening: Trapped

Trapped
March 26, 2016

Please join us on March 30, 2016, at 7:30pm, in SLB 128, for a film screening and discussion of “Trapped.”

U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open.

Since 2010, 288 laws regulating abortion providers have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts.

As the U.S. Supreme Court decides in 2016 whether individual states may essentially outlaw abortion (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt), Trapped follows clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.

Sponsoring Organizations:
