This is my life, my decision. I want a better future. I want justice.
We proudly acknowledge "Jane Doe" as this week’s inspiring #ChangeMaker, and applaud the many advocates, lawyers and organizations who fought for her constitutional right to make her own choices for her body. Her identity hidden behind this alias, at 17 Jane Doe has already faced atrocities far beyond what her years should have prepared her for. Her story shines a bright light on the stigma, controversy, politics — and sometimes outright horror — of accessing abortion care. We honor Jane Doe, her journey to this country, and her bravery in exercising her right to bodily autonomy, even as the current Presidential administration tried to force a different decision upon her.
