    The Janes Collective | How Women of the 1960's-70's fought anti-abortion laws.

    The Janes Collective | How Women of the 1960's-70's fought anti-abortion laws.

    In the wake of the Roe v Wade decision, it is easy to feel hopeless, and angry. I wanted to make an episode that talked about the women who came before us, and how they fought against a system that was determined to deny them their basic human rights and access to healthcare. 
    Today we're going to talk about the Jane Collective, the women who came before us who helped women in need obtain abortion and healthcare at a time where they could be tried for felony murder. 
    About the recent Supreme Court decision, founder Heather Booth said,  "It's certainly against the promise of this country and against freedoms that we've worked so hard for. but we can make a difference and we can make a future...we need to turn our anger into action. because it's when we stay hopeless and helpless that we become victims. We are not victims, we are the hero of our story."

Well Done

This podcast is great! The episodes aren’t long. The host delivers interesting facts without drawing out mundane details. My only complaint is the intro music. I don’t know why but it drives me crazy. However, that doesn’t take away from the overall quality of the podcast and I give it five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
