Your Call: Increasing abortion restrictions forcing clinics to close

May 18, 2016

On the May 19th edition of Your Call, TRAPPED filmmaker Dawn Porter joins us to discuss diminishing abortion access across the country. 

Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers or TRAP laws force clinics to comply with onerous policies designed to regulate them out of existence. Currently the Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt case is before the Supreme Court challenging these laws. 

How are clinic workers, lawyers, and advocates fighting to keep abortion safe and legal? It's Your Call Rose Aguilar and you.
