Check out this post from a fellow blogger! This blogger focuses on the subject of sexual assault which is definitely related to the subject of abortion, as it is often used as an exception for more conservative views on abortion. It also relates by being in the family of women’s rights. Being informed on this topic is important for everyone, and would only enhance the view point of my subject.
As an 18 year old female at a prestigious, liberal arts university, abortion is a topic that I find not only relevant and important, but also crucial to the future of our country and its people. My pen name "CallJane" comes from an initiative in the 1970's called the Jane Collective. This was an underground service in Chicago that trained women in performing safe abortions and created a network for women to locate this service. This collective was created due to the increasing prominence of unsafe abortions that resulted from making abortion illegal in the United States. When a woman needed help, she was told to call Jane.
