Planned Parenthood, the pro-choice healthcare and education provider, have created a 7 minute virtual reality film called Across the Line that aims to enable anti-abortion protestors to experience what it’s like for women who have to face them on their way to a clinic.

The film, produced by Planned Parenthood and co-created by Nonny de la Peña and documentary filmmakers Brad Lichtenstein and Jeff Fitzsimmons, seeks to create empathy within anti-abortion protestors in the hopes of reducing the bullying and violence aimed as women using the clinics.

The film has come at a crucial time with threats and violence against abortion providers and patients are at an all-time high in the United States, and in November last year 3 people were shot and killed and 9 injured by a man calling himself the “warrior for the babies”.

The film was shown at Sundance festival and will be touring across the country this year.
