Storyline

From 2011 to 2013, hundreds of regulations were passed restricting access to abortion in America. Reproductive rights advocates refer to these as "TRAP" laws, or Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. While these laws have been enacted in 11 states, Southern clinics, in particular have been hit hardest and are now in a fight for survival. In Texas, less than half of the clinics open in 2013 are still functioning. In Alabama, three clinics struggle to keep their doors open. And in Mississippi, just one abortion clinic remains. Some of the most common requirements with which clinics struggle to comply include: requiring physicians to obtain admitting privileges from local hospitals for any doctor performing abortions, requiring that clinics undertake expensive renovations such as widening hallways by a few inches to accommodate wheelchairs and gurneys they will rarely use, and requiring other regulations usually reserved for hospitals even though abortion providers rarely require ...

Quotes

Ferrigno, Andrea: I told her, 'You can come to San Antonio. We can help you here.' And she said, 'I can't. I don't have the means. There's no way I can get to San Antonio. So, what if I tell you what I have in my kitchen cabinet, and you tell me what I can do.'

Loved The Sprinkler Trick!!! : )
31 December 2017 | by deltablues-06321See all my reviews

My Gosh! So many Pro-Choice Heroes in the South. I bow to you!

And, on the flip-side, so many uninformed religious people in the south. Not all of them in the South are clueless, but enough to just about strip a women of her rights as a human being.

This movie makes me want to move to your location and help you all with this fight for women's rights - Pro-Choice, Pro-Women. Know many stand with you that are not actually by your physical side. But, we fight where we are! United with you all!!!

Really, a 2016 movie that is so informative, so human, so grounded, and full of so many heroes - and, not one single review. Really? REALLY???

Let this be written!
