Try again, June.<quoted text>
I guess you would be happy if women had to stay in squalor within their marriages, take beatings and have 25 babies for GOD. OH and don't forget for the church to make more Catholics.
Jane Roe lied and was caught in her lie. No one forced her to claim she had an abortion. She wanted the lime-light and she got it. Actually by not telling the truth in the first place ... she USED others.
And as I stated before ... you so called pro-lifers don't save any fetuses by wanting to close the clinics ... but you would sure cause a whole lot more women to be butchered and die.
Women that want abortions will have them ... and I want them to be able to be assisted by the best medical staff possible.
Roe v. Wade was filed in Texas in March 1970 on behalf of the named plaintiff and "all women similarly situated," typical wording for a class-action lawsuit. "Jane Roe" was the lead plaintiff of the class. Because of the time it took for the case to make its way through the courts, the decision did not come in time for Norma McCorvey to have an abortion. She gave birth to her child, whom she put up for adoption.
Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee were the Roe v. Wade plaintiff's lawyers. They were looking for a woman who wanted an abortion, but did not have the means to obtain one. An adoption attorney introduced them to Norma McCorvey. They needed a plaintiff who would remain pregnant without traveling to another state or country where abortion was legal, because they feared that if their plaintiff obtained an abortion outside of Texas, her case could be rendered moot and dropped.
She initially said that her third pregnancy, the one in question at the time of Roe v. Wade, was the result of rape, but years later she said she had invented the rape story in an attempt to make a stronger case for an abortion. The rape story was of little consequence to her lawyers, because they wanted to establish a right to abortion for all women, not just those who had been raped.
