If you missed the TIFF documentary TRAPPED , sponsored by LWVT

This film is crucial to LWV members, since 1979, we have held a position on this subject. Current state's legislation and progress in dismantling it was the film's subject.

Rent it at Netflix.

The synopsis on the Netflix site is as follows:
Amid a political climate that's produced a staggering array of regulations restricting abortion providers, this topical documentary looks at the clinics struggling to provide care and the people going to court to protect women's reproductive rights.


Synopsis prepared by Barbara Ostroth, VP, Voter Service:

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. Trapped interweaves the personal stories behind these regulatory battles: from the physician who crisscrosses the country assuring medical services are available; to the strong women and men who run the clinics; to the lawyers leading the legal charge to eliminate these laws; to the women they are all determined to help.
