refer them to <the mob>


Jane was this service that was established in Chicago that provided abortions when abortion was illegal. We would have women call us who were in need of the abortion service, and of course, having Jane available, without having to refer them to the mob, was a godsend.
The group would take in the calls, and we would do counseling. Then women would be brought to specific houses on a rotating basis where the procedures would be done.

What is "the mob" here?
Thank you.
