What is life like in a place where the anti-abortion movement has made access to legal abortion almost impossible? In the four decades since Roe v. Wade, the pro-life movement has won significant legal, cultural, and political battles. particularly in the South where women in poverty and women of color are especially vulnerable. Set against the backdrop of the fight over the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson takes a close look inside the earnest state effort to ban abortion and families caught in conflict. 

Presented in partnership with NARAL Pro Choice Oregon.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
