Actually if a person could Not change their mind on anything ..especially someone whose own life had such an impact on the unborn...this definitely would not be a free country..
Or are you in favor of censorship as well as abortion..a woman has the right to have an abortion..but she should shut up if she has feelings..about that same thing later on...so then she is a hypocrite...Did you ever change your mind of feelings over a period of 40 years??? Your statements make very little sense to me coming from a person out for women's rights..only my opinion of course.
actually I think the expense came from proabortion advocates who used her case. Not even sure she had an abortion
With that particular pregnancy, no. She did not.
However, she did have previous ones...illegally.

And I'm sorry, but I don't see Norma McCorvey as anything but an opportunist. She may have been the plaintiff in a pivotal case concerning a woman's privacy, and whether or not she has the responsibility for her own medical choices - but she has since become an advocate against the rights she succeeded in getting recognized, being exercised by anyone else.

I call that intensely hypocritical, yes.

What genius is involved when *wanting* states to have the legal right to interfere in a woman's unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy during the first 12 weeks of gestation? What genius involves intrusiveness, nosy parker?

This is one of the best and most unbiased article's I've read on her.

Well according to that same article. Her mom has dementia. And admits tho drinking a lot beat the@#$%oyt of her.

THOSE lawyers knew there was no way they actually help her..they were looking for a plaintiff..she never aborted..there was no way to get that done for her at 5 months pregnant. THEY used her.

Is she the greatest person ever..who is..but I cant imagine living her life. And then coming to regret it..

But no matter her reasons she still has a right to change her mind or beliefs. Foo.. and.The mother and the girlfriend don't sound too hot either..How many former ex partners have great things to say about their ex..

Just saying changing your mind over becoming an Icon for an abortion your never had...well I am sure it affects a person.

Article says she had those babies..gave them for adoption. If she for personal reasons changed her beliefs..and a lot of us do about a lot of things. The older we get maybe...s
That is not hypocritical..They sure pointed to her at first as ROE.And the article foo sites says she worked in women's clinics...BTW..I found it biased against her. Just my read on it..

The fact that over the course of 40 years her life has been taken apart. And used and spit on BY BOTH SIDES at different times..makes me wonder how she came out of it at all..aIMHO

Confused sexually.
and a prime plaintiff for those 2 lawyers looking for one..Told her they would help her get an abortion...Used..bu them when they knew she could not..Bug she served their purposes
I have great pity for her moredo after that article

BOTH SIDES used her and it appears she maybe used them too...not like she came out of it well.....But she. To me was the first victim of this whole ROE controversy.

I see someone who may not in later life been able to handle any of her confliction..I pray she really knows Christ..but even so maybe she carries s weight of guilt. I pray she finds peace

Yes, however if you dont leave out part, she didn't have dementia at the time the interview was given.
THOSE lawyers knew there was no way they actually help her..they were looking for a plaintiff..she never aborted..there was no way to get that done for her at 5 months pregnant. THEY used her.
Get real rose, by her OWN admission, she didn't care. It was all a lie anyway. She lied for YEARS about being raped. She used them as well. Hell, she didn't switch sides until the money ran out for her to be 'pro-choice', and the other side started paying her.
Is she the greatest person ever..who is..but I cant imagine living her life. And then coming to regret it..

See, that's the thing, I dont believe she regrets it at all. SHe's a money hungry nothing who will bend to whomever will pay her the most. She woudln't even speak to the interviewer if they didn't pay her $1000.00 after all, and there's reports of that same mentality throughout her life.

That said, I dont disagree with you that people can change their minds. But Norma is a piss poor role model OR icon for EITHER side of this debate, hence why nobody bothers to use her much anymore. Both sides know she's in it for the money and that's about it. She's got no credibility to anyone BUT the extremists who only preach to the converted.

Forty years is plenty of time to turn your life around and do right by others. She left her lover after her lover's stroke.

All that reminds me of is the politician who impregnated his lover and left his wealthy wife to battle cancer on her own.

People who go where the money is for no other reason than for the money don't deserve my empathy, not under those circumstances. My empathy, my prerogative.

Yes, and it's not a pretty picture. That it is based on the very documents she left behind speaks volumes, too, Foo. I thought the author was objective. I didn't detect any bias anyway.

She should go to FL and hook up with the Schindlers...

Gotta tell you something funny told to me over the weekend. My coworker was enjoying our high temps and bright sun outside in his yard when his niece walked up to him and started talking about kid stuff. He asked her a question to clarify and she looked up at him and said something to the effect of, "You should already know, you more-lawn!" LOLOL

Co-worker shrugged and said it was from being around grampa.

True

And my empathy mine..It seems her lover. Or whoever was not averse to airing láundry either.
Sounds like life wasn't all that loving for either of them..
And I feel worry for her also..

For them both. and have to say for all the unborn since the lawyers found ROE and used her situation for a cause.

Is she a hero..probably not..but a victim. Yes..and people who carry burdens for a long time rarely do it well..Sounds like. And only from that reporter but if true..she was pushed into a point in history because she was desperate for help..She then was on the spotlight..I am nit sure if was just money..We can not know till we walk a mile..but no ind can ever walk that particular mile again.

Oh I definitely DONt see her as a role model..as I said I pray she is sincere on finding Christ. BUTonly they know..and I said in another post she used them too..bug Btu used hrs fir whet they could...
If I was her I would be on the funny farm..Confused and maybe venal. But very sad ..Imo
And the mom..in a lucid moment in her dementia or not is still a piece of work..IMHO

Greed. One of the seven deadly sins.

Pray for her all you want. But in my opinion, when you're 65 years old and trying to blame choices you make today on something that happened 40-60 years ago, it's time to grow up. I have walked miles in several different shoes. I have a damn good perspective based on experience of what life can offer when you least expect it or aren't prepared for it.

I've made stupid decisions and bad choices. Who hasn't? But you don't see me blaming the crap in my childhood for decisions I make today. The closest to that is knowing how I don't want to act.

KAtie...
It is nh opinions she was used. Knave no idea if she blames them or not..I said it would be hard living with guilt she may feel got being s part of it..which implies she does feel responsible..If dud has truly repented and come to Christ responsibility is a big part of that..
when uoh reach you'd sixties. ALL of hour mistakes see much larger..Trust me on that.

And she has a pivotal part..along with those lawyers. She was still asking if she could get her abortion when it went yo appeal..And again. Back then the pill was only coming into use...It was a whole different world..So if at the end years if her life she does have regrets tod all the abortions and all the turmoil..I hope she finds forgiveness..
Obviously if the article is true she made some of her living from the causes..But if she had stayed working in abortion clinics..I don t think that article would have been written.imo
SHe SHOUlD have talked yo that author because then he would have her side.

But i still feel sorry for her..the young girl and the old woman.

If you're trying to say I approve of it, you're doing it wrong. And you're lying by pretending to know what I think. My personal feelings are irrelevant.
Your melodramatic lies have no bearing on my reality, and they say far more about you than they do about me.
You're a hatefilled, lying, sack of sh*t.
Wow, after reading all that gibberish, all I have to say is, Please pass the joint, bitter.
