The film's most compelling argument emerges from interviews with women who now struggle to find abortion services, largely poor women who've had to travel long distances-trips they could scarcely afford-to find a clinic that was open.
Mostly "Trapped" is a portrait of the indefatigable efforts by doctors and clinic workers to stay open, and delves into reasons why women would want abortions ...
The rank hypocrisy of conservatives using government regulation to shut down independent businesses is topped only by the white pro-life activist outside one clinic who shouts at an African-American doctor, "Black lives matter!"
Porter deftly presents statistics, graphs, and background information. But she also shows the intimate, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking day-to-day drama of the dedicated staff and owners of the clinics ...
Unabashedly pro-choice, "Trapped" is not a debate itself, but it has no need to be. Taylor's film does not just have the law on its side, but extraordinary, human elements of character and compassion.
"Trapped" is not a balanced analysis of the abortion debate; it makes its sympathies clear. But it is a powerful and persuasive rendering of a corner of women's health care under siege.
Porter's thoughtful visit to the frontlines of this battle serves up much-needed breaths of fresh air in a toxic media environment that minimizes women's struggle for legal healthcare.
The result is a disconcerting -- and absolutely eye-opening -- examination of the sorry state of women's rights south of the border, an issue made no less concerning by similar conditions that persist around the globe.
Riveting, powerful, and, with a Supreme Court decision on the "undue burden" of such laws due in June, timely as hell.
One is reminded of the anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon's famous quote-because if ever there was a case of laws being chains for the poor and cobwebs for the rich, here it is.
Dawn Porter's Trapped is a sobering look at the impact of anti-abortion legislation in the South.
Does the sight of Rick Perry taking away women's rights incapacitate you with sadness, or does it fill you with righteous rage? If the former, don't watch. If the latter, watch and be inspired to do something.
