How women use their bodies is a continual source of political and legal debate. For those who’d like to learn more about the frontline fight, a new documentary, “Trapped,” is playing Saturday, May 14, at the Richmond Triangle Players. The film, directed by Dawn Porter, chronicles the devastating effects of TRAP, or Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers, on women’s health clinics because of laws passed in state legislatures since 2010. Clinic workers and patients tell the story of how a woman’s access to a legal abortion is increasingly being determined by their ZIP codes. Awaiting ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court is Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, a lawsuit suit brought by a Texas-based abortion provider challenging two provisions in a 2013 Texas law. How the now evenly divided court rules will have a profound affect on women’s reproductive rights throughout the country. Doors open at 11 a.m. with the movie starting at noon. Cost is $10. Discussion follows the screening.
