Why We’re Here
In Texas, a person under the age of 18 cannot access a legal abortion without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. The vast majority of teens who seek abortion care in Texas do so with the knowledge and consent of their parents.
A small number—between 200 and 300 per year—cannot. That’s who we’re here for. Those are the Janes.
Janes are pregnant Texans under the age of 18 who cannot even consider the option of legal abortion care without the approval of a judge, because they do not have a parent or guardian who can or will, under the law, grant consent for the procedure.
