Watch Trailer For ‘Ask For Jane’

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.

Based on a true story, this group of determined Midwestern women inspired an entire generation to take control of their bodies and their activism resonates through to today as the fight for abortion rights and Roe v. Wade are just as important now as they were then.
