At least half of American women will experience an unintended pregnancy by the age of 45.  But, American abortion clinics are in a fight for their survival as they battle the spread of state laws designed to restrict access to abortion.

Trapped follows two Southern clinics, capturing their struggle as they continue to provide care in the face of an increasingly hostile legal climate.

Trapped is a powerful new documentary that focuses on TRAP laws (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers) and clinics that struggle to comply with them. The Supreme Court is scheduled to announce its decision in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt surrounding these controversial laws in June.  Its decision could have an impact on Roe v. Wade, the ruling that made abortion in America legal in 1973.

Winner of a Special Jury Award at Sundance, this ONE TIME ONLY SHOWING of Trappedfollowed by discussion, is an excellent backdrop to understanding the Supreme Court’s decision when it is announced.
