Discussion on Saturday, April 27 at 3:30pm.

During the four years before the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in 1973, the 100 members of a secret organization known as Jane helped to provide over 11,000 safe abortions at a time when access was highly limited. Written by a member of the organization, The Story of Jane is essential reading about a frequently underexposed chapter in history.
