Your Call: States chipping away at abortion access

On the March 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with filmmaker Dawn Porter about her new documentary TRAPPED. 

States across the country are aggressively chipping away at abortion access. 

Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers or TRAP laws force clinics to comply with onerous policies designed to regulate them out of existence. From specifying the size of procedure rooms to corridor width, new regulations have forced dozens of clinics to close throughout the south. 

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