Why a booklet about 1970s abortions has renewed resonance
Spotted on a shelf at the Half-Price Books on South Lamar Boulevard on Wednesday, the booklet "Jane: Documents from Chicago's Clandestine Abortion Service, 1968-1973."
The big picture: Any day now the U.S. Supreme Court is likely to overturn its 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which assures federal protections for abortion.
- Texas' so-called trigger law, which would make abortions a felony, would go into effect in 30 days if Roe is repealed.
