See “Call Jane” at a cinema, or a clinic near you

The critically-acclaimed drama “Call Jane,” about the “bad old days” before abortion was legal in the US, isn’t just a movie, it’s a cause.

Now the producers of it are showing it at women’s health care clinics that provide abortions, a way of spreading the word, pushing voter turnout and reversing the incredibly unpopular and comically “defended” Supreme Court decision that threatens woman and America with a civil-rights-stripping return to something like the Dark Ages.

That’s right. Instead of addressing the assorted problems and crises facing the world today, women are having to organize in ways that the film, set in 1960s Chicago, recreates — prepping for a war over “privacy” and “settled law” that’s been in place for nearly 50 years.

Here’s a short doc on the movement that the film, starring Elizabeth Banks, Sigourney Weaver, Wunmi Mosaku and Kate Mara, recreates.
