Jane Hodgson, a pioneer in reproductive justice, died this week.

She was a name in our state that embodied our brand of liberalism. Not born a radical, she was moved by the senselessness of watching patients come in after botched illegal procedures. While the Midwesterner is not often by nature a theoretician, we do not tend to suffer foolishness lightly. Especially when it concerns the welfare of another.

Jane put herself on the line for the good of her patients. A good doctor and a pioneer has passed away.

Rest in peace.
