(Trailer @ https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thelastclinic/58218069])
In Mississippi, a new law threatens to shut down the Jackson Women's Health Organization, the last abortion provider in the state. Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Maisie Crow and writer Alissa Quart provide an intimate portrait of the lives at the center of this political maelstrom. From one of the clinic's doctors, who feels duty-bound to travel there each week from out of state; to a leading protester, a doctor who once performed abortions herself; to the young women wrestling with a decision that will change the course of their lives, this unique multimedia story takes you beyond the slogans. The Last Clinic captures the humanity behind an incendiary issue.
Looking forward to seeing you all there for our first events of the semester!
This event is co-sponsored by UH Office of Public Health Studies and the JABSOM Department of OB/GYN and funded (in part) by the Student Activity and Program Fee Board.
