Mar 18

(Dawn Porter, 2016, United States, 81 min)

Seattle Premiere

Introduction by #ShoutYourAbortion founder Amelia Bonow

Friday, Mar 18 at 07:45PM

Trapped follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front lines of a battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women. The film recently won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Social Impact Filmmaking at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

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 Regulation of Abortion Providers) are spreading across America.  Faced with increased costs of compliance and the alarming fear of violence from protestors, 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 American women, many of them poor and uninsured. The film shines a light on the work of several women's health providers including Dr. Willie Parker, Amy Hagstrom Miller (Whole Women's Health), Marva Sadler (Whole Women's Health), Nancy Northup (Center for Reproductive Rights), June Ayers (Reproductive Health Service), Dalton Johnson (Alabama Women's Center), and Gloria Gray (West Alabama Women's Center).
