With Roe’s Demise, a Chicago Rabbi Revives a Clandestine Abortion Network

posted on November 15, 2022

Adam Kovac of The Forward reports that Tamar Manasseh, a Chicago-based rabbi, is reviving the Jane Collective, a pre-Roe underground abortion network that connected women seeking abortions with safe providers. The new version, dubbed We Are Jane, does not directly provide abortions but instead provides birth control care packages and fundraising for a local abortion rights organization. Manasseh said, “We are commanded to be active. We have a world to repair right now, one of those cracks is the erosion of women’s rights.”
