Patrick Hill Mr. Tobin Journalism 101 H 29 March 2010 The Last Abortion Clinic Frontline produced “The Last Abortion Clinic” back on November 8, 2005 which dealt with the ongoing war on abortion rights. The documentary was based on the Casey v Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania which allowed abortions but gave states greater control over the restrictions on abortion. Mississippi is one of the states that took full advantage of this case and is the setting for the documentary. In Mississippi, there is a complex situation for abortion rights which is argued by Pro-Life and Pro-Choice supporters in the documentary. Mississippi’s state governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general were all pro-life and helped impose “trap” laws which make it hard for women to receive abortions and holds abortion clinics to strict laws. Women in Mississippi have problems with receiving abortions because there is only one abortion clinic left.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
