A lot of news about new abortion restrictions just washes over people. It’s hard to keep up with the onslaught, and a lot of the laws sound technical. What difference does it make to require an abortion clinic to be an ambulatory surgical center? What’s the big deal about mandating that an abortion doctor must have admitting privileges at a hospital? The new documentary TRAPPED cuts through the jargon to show the human devastation caused by these attacks on reproductive rights.
I had the honor of sitting on a panel following a screening of this film last weekend with a wonderful group of women, including June Ayers, a clinic director featured in the film. I felt so much gratitude for the providers in the film who were fighting back against increasingly draconian and nonsensical regulations because they care so much about the women who need their help.
