This special screening of Dawn Porter's documentary "Trapped" is hosted by Healthy and Free Tennessee and Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee.
U.S. abortion clinics are fighting to survive. Since 2010, hundreds of laws regulating abortion clinics have been passed by conservative state legislatures, particularly in the south. These restrictions, known as TRAP laws (or Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) are spreading across America. Faced with increased costs of compliance and the alarming fear of violence from protesters, the stakes for the women and men on the front lines 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 American women, many of them poor and uninsured.
This is a FREE documentary screening but we will be asking for donations for SisterReach's brand new technical support fund that helps folks in Tennesseewho need help paying for services associated with their abortion (hotel, transportation etc) that often times create a barrier to accessing abortion care.
