Jessica is a middle aged, middle income, mostly average white lady– who has had abortions. And those abortions led her to study the history of abortion in the United States– because she’s a bit of a nerd. And then she wrote a really big play about Ann Lohman– an Abortionist in the 1800’s and all around badass! And she thought that the abortion chapter of her life was closed, she was almost menopausal after all… But then came Dobbs. And Jessica realized that having written a play about the history of legal abortion in the United States made her an expert in a niche part of legal history that was all of a sudden very important.
