Thirty percent of American women will have an abortion in their lifetimes. Across America, and particularly in the South, however, abortion clinics are in a fight for their existence. Since 2010, legislators have been introducing hundreds of anti-choice bills known as Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers, or "TRAP" laws. Caught in the middle of this political posturing are millions of women of reproductive age, many of them poor and uninsured. 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.
