This summer, the Supreme Court will likely repeal Roe v. Wade''s 1973 legislation, allowing women in up to 26 states to have no choice but to get abortion safely. This summer, Tia told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, women will take matters into their own hands.

We want to emphasis that this is a very watchable film, which is a thriller.
