Thirty percent of American women will have an abortion in their lifetimes, but this country’s abortion clinics are in trouble. Since 2010, legislators have been introducing bills known as Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers, or "TRAP" laws. Millions of women are caught in the middle of this political posturing. Award-winning filmmaker Dawn Porter takes viewers to the frontlines of the fight for reproductive rights by following two Southern clinics that struggle to provide care in an increasingly hostile legal and political climate.
