I’m currently working on a short film about the lack of access to abortion services here in Grand Junction, Colorado. It’s based on the experiences of local women who have had to drive ridiculous distances to obtain services, and have been faced with angry protestors, travel expenses, and the added hardship of making the trip during such an already stressful time.
There is one OB/GYN office in town that offers medical abortions, and the nearest surgical abortion provider is hours away. This distinct lack of access to abortion is coupled with the presence of a crisis pregnancy center, which purports to offer “objective” information and options counseling, and instead psychologically manipulates women into steering away from abortion.
Stay tuned for updates and sneak peak clips.
