Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the biggest abortion access case in decades, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. The case centers on a Texas TRAP (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers) law. TRAP laws are medically unnecessary regulations that are shuttering clinics across the country, pushing safe abortion out of reach.
Faced with increased costs of compliance and the alarming fear of violence from protesters, the stakes for the women and men on the frontlines couldn’t be any higher. As the battle heads to the U.S. Supreme Court, TRAPPED follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers fighting to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of women, many of them poor and uninsured.
Amelia Bonow of Shout Your Abortion will introduce the film. Following the screening, a panel of local organizations on the front lines of abortion access will discuss the impact of this Supreme Court case in Washington, current threats to abortion access in our state, and what you can do about it. We’ll also get an update on emerging research on self-induced abortion.
