Jane—Underground Abortion Service


1969–1973. Feminist, underground abortion service, one hundred plus members performed over eleven thousand illegal abortions in Chicago.

“Those of us who were members of Jane were remarkable only because we chose to act with women’s needs as our guide. In doing so we transformed illegal abortion from a dangerous, sordid experience into one that was life-affirming and powerful.”—Laura Kaplan
