As the Dobbs decision looms on the horizon, the media is harping on abortion “rights” harder than ever.
HBO released a documentary on Wednesday called “The Janes,” about the wave of underground abortions by a network of women in the 1960s and ‘70s. It is a film about women who broke the law to murder babies but has been painted by the media as “hopeful,” a symbol of bravery, and a “must watch.”
The documentary trailer has been out since May 10, just eight days after the leaked draft of the U.S. Supreme Court Dobbs decision that may overturn of the 1973 Roe v. Wade verdict.
Before Roe passed in the Supreme Court in ‘73, women sought to break the law and obtain abortions illegally. “The Janes” were a group of women who terminated more than 11,000 unwanted pregnancies in just four years. Abortion at the time was a criminal act in some states, as it should be. The Janes supposedly posted cryptic flyers and ads to spread the word about their services without getting caught. “Pregnant? Call Jane,” they’d write.
The underground abortion ring was founded by Heather Booth in ‘68. Booth had a friend that wanted “to help his ‘nearly suicidal’ sister end an unplanned pregnancy,” according to New York Post. Booth’s story is one of the 11 on-camera interviews highlighted through the documentary.
In 1972 Chicago police arrested some of The Janes, who faced charges up to 110 years. When Roe was decided in 1973, the charges were dropped.
The HBO documentary is a praise for these accomplices of murder and leftie “news” outlets and blue checks are hailing the film.

When Tia Lessin & Emma Pildes codirected The Janes, their new documentary about an underground network of abortion activists in pre-Roe Chicago, they couldn't have known how timely its release would turn out to be. Don't miss this urgent & necessary film. https://t.co/Sv4OKxZ1vC— Dana Stevens (@thehighsign) June 8, 2022

Despite the left's roaring applause for a film that celebrates murder, it’s important to note that the documentary comes at a time where a monumental decision about life is about to be made. The left has clearly indicated their support for baby killing and I pray that the Supreme Court justices make the decision that will help end that slaughter of the unborn.
