Religious conservatives continue to push harsh laws restricting access to women's healthcare across the country. This short documentary brings attention to their efforts and outlines the importance of broad access to contraceptive options.

Featured interviews include Rep. Lois Capps (CA-23), who as a former nurse has long been a leader on women's health issues; Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List; and Dr. Kimberly Shepherd, an OB/GYN who provides medical authority on issues that never should've been politicized in the first place.
