I am Jane Doe–a name I have taken for this project as a nod to Chicago’s Jane Collective, which worked to provide safe abortions before abortion was legalized in the United States.

I have been compiling information on how to safely perform your own abortion and obtain your own birth control and emergency contraception for years.

Until recently, I had only been able to share this information with friends and the few people who made their way to an old internet posting of mine.  Today, I am sharing my knowledge with everyone.

You can find some things I’ve written about reproductive choice at http://jezebel.com/i-help-desperate-women-and-i-could-go-to-jail-for-it-1320076409 or an interview with me at http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2013/09/25/the-last-resort-an-interview-with-an-illegal-abortion-provider/

    Thank you for voicing your opinion so strongly. It’s so important for any person who has an audience to speak loudly and confidently in defense of the rights of women. I read your recent interview with VICE magazine and it filled me with passion. It’s very motivating to see you turn your anger and frustration into a helpful, literally lifesaving tool for women.
    A few years ago I decided to go back to school to pursue the goal of attending medical school specifically to specialize in abortions and contraceptives. I’ve been searching for women I can keep in touch with throughout my journey – a mentor of sorts. I was wondering if you would be open and interested in keeping in contact with me. Even as a source of motivating energy during such frustrating political times.

    After reading the VICE interview I felt compelled to reach out to you, even if it’s just to let you know that you are amazing and that I am very grateful for what you do, and for your voice. You’re very empowering!
