SHOWTIME® TO PREMIERE DOCUMENTARY JACKSON

ON TUESDAY, MAY 2

 Film Examines Legal, Moral and Emotional Complexity Surrounding Mississippi’s Last Standing Abortion Clinic

 

 

NEW YORK – April 20, 2017 – SHOWTIME will air the television premiere of the critically acclaimed documentary JACKSON  on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT. From award-winning director Maisie Crow (A Life Alone, The Last Clinic),JACKSON is an intimate look at the lives of three women caught in the complex issues surrounding access to abortion in the Deep South.

 

 

Set against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, JACKSON confronts the conflict over reproductive healthcare in America’s Bible Belt. At one time, Mississippi had 14 abortion clinics, but now Jackson Women’s Health Organization is the only clinic left. JACKSON chronicles the many consequences of these events through Shannon Brewer, director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Barbara Beaver, a leader of the anti-abortion movement who runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices, and April Jackson, a young mother of four faced with an unplanned pregnancy.

 

JACKSON is executive produced by Johanna Hamilton, Barbara Ehrenreich and Alissa Quart.

Dream chaser extraordinaire! Judy is sarcastic and goofy! She is an avid admirer of all things supernatural, paranormal, and mystical. (She finally came around to zombies, but NO clowns...she loathes clowns). She loves to read and write, watches way too much TV, and enjoys many genres of film. She's enjoys music of the Trance/Electronica variety (and let's be honest most music from the 80s). She also has a wicked sweet tooth. Cupcakes beware.
