Last week, Lady Parts Justice (LPJ) declared February TRAP Law month and embarked on their mission to educate the masses about these little known and extremely dangerous state regulations that have become law in 24 states. These laws, known as TRAP laws, are designed to make it nearly impossible and incredibly expensive for clinics to remain open, and for patients to access abortion care. Lizz Winstead – LPJ’s fearless leader, co-founder, comedian and co-creator of The Daily Show – and her comrades will be dropping one video a week exposing the absurdities of these amply named laws, all leading up to the BIGGEST abortion case in 24 years Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. This monumental case will be going before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 2nd and most people have NO IDEA! It’s time to get informed.
PRESS HERE to watch Clinic Hunters, the second video of the four part series. The video satirizes HGTV’s hit series House Hunters – proving that in 2016 it’s harder for a person to find safe, affordable abortion care within their budget, than finding their dream house.
The Lady Parts Justice League TRAP Law series is more important than ever. When you take into account all of these different types of restrictions and laws (TRAP Laws, mandatory waiting periods, and abortions band – just to name a few!), 49 states (49!) have compromised abortionaccess since 1973 when abortion became a LEGAL, CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT. With that being said, it is a crucial time for pro-choice supporters to come together to expose the extremists who stand in the way of safe and accessible abortions.
ICYMI: PRESS HERE to watch the first video of the series that was released and read what Lizz Winstead tells TIME.com about it HERE. The video is a hilarious (and factual!) take on the classic film Groundhog Day – because just like the movie, we are continuously having to face the same battles over and over again.
