Join us at the movies for a one-time showing of the new film Ask for Jane!
Ask for Jane is based on a true story. The setting is Chicago, 1969 - Imagine a world where abortion is punishable by prison, and getting birth control is nearly impossible. As a result, women die every day from taking matters into their own hands. When a pregnant student at the University of Chicago attempts to take her own life, Rose (Cait Cortelyou) and Janice (Cody Horn) find a doctor willing to perform the procedure in secret to save the woman's life. Sparked by this experience, Rose and Janice form the Jane Collective: a secret organization to help other women obtain safe and illegal abortions. Operating like a spy network, complete with blindfolds and code names, the Janes help thousands of women - but they can't hide from the police forever.
After the screening, stick around for a talkback panel about getting involved in the fight for abortion access with Stephanie Craddock Sherwood from Women Have Options-Ohio, the statewide abortion fund; Jordyn Close from URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity; Elaina Ramsey from the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, along with NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio's Kelley Freeman moderating!
