Wade more than four decades ago, the self-labeled “pro-life” movement has won significant cultural, political and legal battles. Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in Mississippi and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. Jackson is wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South and explores the nuanced nature of abortion in America’s Bible Belt. Shannon Brewer is the director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only remaining abortion clinic in the state. Barbara Beaver runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices and is a leader of the anti-abortion movement in Mississippi. April Jackson is a young mother of four children faced with another unplanned pregnancy. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eSet against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, \u003ci\u003eJackson\u003c\/i\u003e captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFestival Awards \u0026amp;

"Easily one of the year's strongest documentaries...” - Criterion Cast 

Abortion remains legal in the United States, but anti-abortion efforts have succeeded in making it virtually inaccessible in some places, and in the Deep South, often unthinkable. At one time Mississippi had fourteen abortion clinics. Now only one remains.

Since the passage of Roe v. Wade more than four decades ago, the self-labeled “pro-life” movement has won significant cultural, political and legal battles. Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in Mississippi and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. Jackson is wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South and explores the nuanced nature of abortion in America’s Bible Belt. Shannon Brewer is the director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only remaining abortion clinic in the state. Barbara Beaver runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices and is a leader of the anti-abortion movement in Mississippi. April Jackson is a young mother of four children faced with another unplanned pregnancy. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. 

Set against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America.

"An alarming documentary on a perennial hot-button issue, this is recommended." - Video Librarian

“Easily one of the year's strongest documentaries...” - Criterion Cast

"Following three very different women positioned at the ideological crossroads of Mississippi’s last remaining abortion clinic, Maisie Crow’s film represents a strong and scrupulously even-handed addition to the annals of documentaries on this most divisive of subjects, including “12th & Delaware,” “After Tiller” and the recent “Trapped.” - Los Angeles Times

“In its focus on that final surviving Mississippi abortion clinic, Maisie Crow's elegant, unsettling Jackson finds issues of class, race, religion, executive power, and women's rights to be tightly interwoven." - The Village Voice

“A grim warning of what restrictive abortion legislation across the U.S. actually looks like.” - The Huffington Post


“Jackson allows all sides in the abortion issue to have their say to illuminate the issue's truths and lies. The results are sometimes engrossing, sometimes anger-inducing.” - Beyond Chron 


“Crow deftly allows the story to unfold in the words, deeds, and realities of those involved without pushing too hard in one direction. In the end, the viewer is left to draw their own conclusions and work out their own feelings about whether the film chronicles the tale of a victory or a defeat.” - The Lancet Medical Journal 

"This well-crafted film adds to our understanding by humanizing some of the opponents.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“Jackson is not only one of the best documentaries to premiere at this year’s L.A. Film Festival, it’s sure to be one of the best of the year, period.” - Patheos
