'Roe' Urges Supreme Court to 'Kill' Abortion Laws
The Washington Times has a great article about Roe vs. Wade today...
..."Jane Roe," whose 1973 Supreme Court case struck down state laws against abortion, petitioned the high court yesterday to vacate that decision or order a new trial on the grounds that abortion hurts women. Norma McCorvey (the "Jane Roe") was joined on the steps of the high court yesterday by women who said the public needs to know about the mental and physical damage that their abortions caused them and other women.
"I plead with the court to listen to the witnesses and re-evaluate Roe vs. Wade," McCorvey said. "It was a dreadful day in America when the Supreme Court allowed a woman to kill her own child."
Among the women who spoke yesterday was Alveda C. King, a civil rights activist and niece of the late Martin Luther King. Miss King said that after she had an abortion, "the guilt made me ill." She compared abortion to slavery. "Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate," she said. ... (Rough Woodsman, and Tulip Girl also comment on this comparison of abortion and slavery)
Newsweek Online's interview with Alveda King is reviewed by Annie, and Dawn Eden adds her articulate response....
So "Jane Roe" is standing up to the Supreme Court and telling them to reverse their stupid, deadly decision -- and the coolest thing is that thousands of other women who have had abortions are are now standing up and saying that abortion is wrong --- see the cool video at Stand Up Girl!
