Image of Trapped

A look at the impact of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws in the southern U.S., and their disproportionate effect on women living in poverty.

Trapped follows the physicians, staff, and patients of abortion clinics in Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas as they struggle to remain open in the face of an increasingly hostile legal and political climate. The film follows African American physician Dr. Willie Porter, one of few doctors willing to perform abortions in the Deep South, as he travels from his home in Chicago each month to see patients at the Alabama and Mississippi clinics.
