Join the Women's Center for a screening of Jackson, a film that examines the inaccessibility of abortion in the United States. The film demonstrates that although abortion exists as a legal medical procedure in the United States, anti-choice legislators have worked tirelessly to place an undue burden on those attempting to exercise their right to choose. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. Set against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America (Jacksonthefilm.com, 2016). A discussion and opportunity for questions will follow the film.
