Event Image Movie Night: Trapped
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Join the American Constitution Society and the Women's Law Caucus for a screening of the recent documentary, Trapped. Trapped examines how, "U.S. reproductive health clinics are fighting to remain open. Since 2010, 288 TRAP (Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) laws have been passed by conservative state legislatures. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary measures, clinics have taken their fight to the courts. As the U.S. Supreme Court decides in 2016 whether individual states may essentially outlaw abortion (Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt), Trapped follows the struggles of the clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front lines of a battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women." We will have a brief discussion to start, lead by Constitutional Law Professor Steven Green. Professor Green will discuss the history of Supreme Court cases regarding abortion rights over the past forty plus years, from Roe v. Wade to Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt. Following the film we may.also have a guest speaker from Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette.
