Jane's Due Process

Pregnant teens in Texas seeking an abortion must either notify their parents or obtain judicial bypass. Neither is easy from an emotional standpoint. From a legal standpoint, the latter can be so intimidating as to be avoided. Enter Jane's Due Process, with a toll-free hotline to give straight info to teen girls in crisis. JDP has woven a safety net of health care providers, attorneys, and crisis specialists to help make a traumatic experience less so. And they have done it in the face of constant pressure from the religious right to deny the constitutional right to choose.
