Jackson | USA | Documentary | Maisie Crow | 90 min

What does life look like in a place where the anti-abortion movement has made access to legal abortion nearly impossible? Since the passing of Roe v. Wade over four decades ago, the self-labeled “pro-life” movement has won significant legal, cultural and political battles. Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in the American South and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. These women find it difficult to access reproductive health care, especially in places like Mississippi where the anti-abortion faction is strongest. Shannon Brewer is the director of Jackson Women's Health Organization, the only remaining abortion clinic in the state. Barbara Beavers runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices and is a leader of the anti-abortion movement in Mississippi. April Jackson is a young mother of four children faced with another unplanned pregnancy. This film is an intimate, first-of-its-kind look at the issues surrounding abortion through the eyes of three women who stand on opposing sides of the debate and live during a turning point for reproductive health in America.
