How ‘The Janes’ gave 11,000 illegal abortions ahead of Roe v. Wade
woman seeking an illegal abortion. “My first day of learning how to assist was the day I got arrested,” Smith, now 71, told The Post.  But Smith was more concerned about protecting the identities of the women she helped end unwanted pregnancies than facing 110 years in jail on 11 counts of abortion and conspiracy to commit abortion.“We didn’t want the names and telephone numbers of [our clients] to be given to the police,” explained Smith, a Queens native. “So we ripped the cards into pieces and ate all the parts that were relevant.”Smith had joined an underground abortion network called Jane, whose members went by the alias “the Janes.” They covertly terminated more than 11,000 unwanted pregnancies in four years — all while under the threat of retribution from the cops, the mob and the Catholic Church — before getting caught. Now, 40 years later, their story is being told in the HBO documentary “The Janes,” to be released Wednesday.“These were very principled people that came out of the Civil Rights movement, the anti-[Vietnam] war movement, the student movement,” Tia Lessin, who directed the film with Emma Pildes, told The Post.“They were mothers, grandmothers, aunts and students,” added Lessin, the Oscar-nominated creative behind 2008’s “Trouble the Water,” about Hurricane Katrina. “But they were all united by their belief that women should be able to make this choice.” The duo conducted 11 on-camera interviews with the surviving members of Jane — including Heather Booth, who founded the underground abortion ring in 1968.

'I'm a porn star - people still shaming sex workers in 2022 should wake up'
sex workers' in 2022 should 'wake up to reality'.The adult film star said that conventions were long ago put into place in order to keep women firmly in their place.However, Cindy, who was born in Vietnam but now lives in the US, said that "those days are over".After two years of covid restrictions, Cindy said sex work is more popular than ever."Sex work is more prevalent than ever and people no longer have the power to discredit or stigmatise our career choices,' said Cindy."It's a far cry from when the threat of our ‘secrets’ being ‘outed’ to our families weighed heavily on us."Cindy recounts the time a little more than a decade ago when she was working a 9-5 job at a famous fashion retail store while moonlighting in the evenings as a webcam model to help pay off her student loans and supplement her meagre retail salary.“I kept this night job completely separate from my day job."However, one day I was called into HR and confronted with my profile photo from the cam site."They told me that a customer alerted HR, but I believe it to be someone else who sent the photo to my company, as well as every woman in his family."Even though having this second job wasn’t ‘wrong’, I was shamed by HR - they ‘expected more’ from me - and now that all my co-workers knew about my other job, I found myself in a hostile work situation and had to quit the job."She added: "This was nothing in comparison to my former boyfriend’s family sending me harassing and rude texts… his mother told me I was ruining her family." Now with the rise of OnlyFans, which exploded in popularity during the pandemic, independent content creators became their own bosses and working from home took on a whole new meaning.
