JANE: An Abortion Service-First Show
April 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This fascinating film takes a political look at a little-known chapter in women’s history. It tells the story of “Jane”, the Chicago-based women’s health group that performed nearly 12,000 safe illegal abortion between 1969 and 1973.
