We need to talk about "The Janes" HBO Documentary on abortion
This documentary is amazing. Perfect 100 on Rotten Tomatoes.
It is frightening. And inspiring.
It is so upsetting to me that we are going backwards on abortion access.
What these heroes did in Chicago in the early 1970s should be heralded by everyone.
If youve seen it what did you think?
If you havent seen it you should. Its so well done.
And be scared for what it means for our future in red state hells like Oklahoma.
I loved the matter-of-factness of the women that ran the operation with little concern for their own safety. They simply saw a problem that they were motivated to fix by whatever means necessary. Be sure to watch the stats shown at the end of how many women they helped in only a few years of running The Janes. Truly uplifting.
