‘Plan C’ Abortion Pill Documentary Screens At SXSW As Texas Judge Weighs Whether To Undo Access To The Medication

A federal judge may rule within a matter of days on a case that could undo the FDA’s approval of mifepristone, one of two medicines used in combination to end a pregnancy in early stages.

Meanwhile, Walgreens is facing intense blowback for announcing it would not offer mifepristone in its stores located in 21 states whose attorneys general have threatened legal action against any pharmacy that provides the drug.

That is the urgent context in which the documentary Plan C, directed by Tracy Droz Tragos, makes its Texas premiere at SXSW this morning.
