WHY I BECAME A JANE
TELL US YOUR JANE STORY AT CHOICE@WEAREJANE.ORG
I became a Jane because it is the resistance. And because I’m pissed off. As a Black woman in this country, I’m tired of being afraid. I have to be afraid of what the next right to be taken from me will be. I have to be afraid of my children being shot down in the streets or maybe even in a classroom. I have to be afraid of what the overturning of Roe means for my daughter, my nieces, and all of the other young women in my life. I am tired of feeling helpless. I am tired of swearing at my television screen. I am tired of waiting for November. I wanted to. I NEEDED to do something NOW. And becoming a JANE gives me an opportunity to do something meaningful, every day. Every time I put on that T-shirt, I am activated. It’s not only an expression of my inner rage, it says, I’m a fighter. I’m a woman who will fight to protect the human right G-d and the constitution endowed me with. It says I believe in a woman's right to make her own decisions regarding her body. It says I am an ally, a resource for other women and girls who so badly need it right now. It says F*ck Clarence Thomas Taney! It says WE WON’T GO BACK!
JANE / CHICAGO, IL
I have never personally had an abortion but I have paid for my son's girlfriend to have one. I was born in 1962 — I remember when Roe was ruled on. We cannot go back to back-alley abortions.
