Trapped - A brilliant new documentary detailing how the forces on the side of the national law deal with anti-abortion groups to make abortion impossible for working women in many parts of the country. 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), this film 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. (2016, 90 min)
