TRAPPED: What Remains of a Woman’s Right to Choose?

Introduced by: Judge Lynne Riddle (ret),
Instructor, Reproductive Justice, UCI-Law School

Saturday, July 21st at 1:45 pm



U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open in the face of conservative "Trap Laws."

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.

In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt) that prevents individual states from essentially outlawing abortion. Trapped follows the clinic workers and lawyers who were on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women.

The film premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Special Jury Award for Social Impact Film Making.
