In this excerpt from TRAPPED, June Ayers, an Alabama native and women’s reproductive health clinic owner, talks about the challenges of working with the state’s rigorous codes and regulations in order to stay afloat. “There are times Alabama feels like a third world country, but for me it’s home,” she says. June stays because she wants to help bring about change. In the meantime, she lives off her income tax refund. She compares deciphering reproductive healthcare regulations to trying to work your own crossword puzzle. “I work crossword puzzles well, but I don’t do it when I have to make my own puzzle up. A lot of this doesn’t make sense.”
