Storyline

With a single abortion clinic remaining in the state of Mississippi, the city of Jackson has become ground zero in the nation's battle over reproductive health-care. Jackson is an intimate portrait of the interwoven lives of three women in this town. Wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South, the lives of two women are deeply affected by the director of the local pro-life crisis pregnancy center and the movement she represents.

19 September 2018 | by deonnalewisSee all my reviews

The documentary was good but slightly confusing 1 min its talkin bout abortions next pro life but yet instead poor young lady has her plate full with 7 kids anf not even 30 yet still lives w her mom It was quite touching the only problem & concern I had was why not encourage April to stay on birth control why not try to gt her mental health get her help w her kids and force education and how to get her on hud or sum until she can gt on her feet ? Clearly shes depressed ik thats not the message yu guys are sending but if u mentor her atleast help her! Sometimes all a person need is encouragement or for sum1 to give them direction I would love to see an update on her and her kids
