Abortion may be legal in America, but conservative legislatures have been working for years to pass laws that restrict women’s access to it. Hundreds of those laws have been enacted this decade, and they’ve forced many abortion clinics to close their doors. In a new documentary, filmmaker Dawn Porter tells the stories of clinic workers and lawyers fighting the restrictions designed to regulate abortion out of existence. Porter’s film is called Trapped, and she will be joining RadioWest soon to talk about it.

Dawn Porter has produced, directed, and written numerous films, including Gideon’s ArmySpies of Mississippi, and Rise: The Promise of My Brother’s Keeper. Her latest film,Trapped, premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival where it received the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Social Impact Filmmaking.
