LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Norma McCorvey apologized to a crowd of anti-abortion activists for her role as the plaintiff Jane Roe in Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case that led to legalized abortion.
"I was wrong," McCorvey said on Sunday.
"I thought I was doing a good thing. I thought I was helping women," McCorvey said. "I was naive. I let my emotions overcome my senses, and I regret signing that affidavit that brought Roe vs. Wade into being."
McCorvey, who now heads Roe No More Ministry in Dallas, discussed her transformation from a figurehead of the abortion rights movement to anti-abortion activist....
On moral grounds,it is good that she has made this public, better late than never.
Roman Catholics on this point do put a lot of us Protestants to shame, for does not scripture tell us to "open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction." proverbs 31:8 (see also verse 9).
There are many unborn babies ,even as i write this, who cannot speak for themselves,and are appointed for the destruction that shall come upon them by abortion. How dare we keep silence!
