  • Pro-lifers slam FX documentary's claim that Jane Roe (Norma McCorvey ) was paid to be pro-life: 'She was sincere'

    Pro-life activists, some of whom have known Norma McCorvey for many years, are rejecting a new documentary’s claim that the woman behind the landmark Supreme Court abortion case Roe v. Wade was paid later in life to promote anti-abortion views. FX on Hulu will officially release a documentary on Friday titled “AKA Jane Roe." The documentary features a 2017 interview of the famed woman behind the 1973 decision near the end of her life. A major point of controversy for the documentary is the claim that McCorvey famously went from being an advocate for abortion rights to becoming a pro-life...
  • Deceptive Editing? Norma McCorvey From Roe v. Wade Didn't Reject the Pro-Life Cause, Former Lawyer Says

    An upcoming documentary reportedly makes an earthshattering claim about Norma McCorvey, the “Roe” in Roe v. Wade (1973), who later regretted her role in making abortion legal and became a defender of the unborn. According to the new FX documentary AKA Jane Roe, McCorvey admitted she was paid off by the pro-life movement. Yet Allan Parker, founder and president of The Justice Foundation, represented McCorvey from 2000 to 2005 and maintained a friendly correspondence with her afterward. He argued against the film’s central claim, suggesting the filmmakers snookered McCorvey and deceptively edited her words. “I was in contact with Norma...

    The woman behind the 1973 ruling legalising abortion in the US is seen admitting in a new documentary that her stunning change of heart on the issue in later life was "all an act". Norma McCorvey, known as Jane Roe in the US Supreme Court's decision on Roe v Wade, shocked the country in 1995 when she came out against abortion. But in new footage, McCorvey alleges she was paid to switch sides. The documentary, AKA Jane Roe, airs this Friday on the US channel FX. The programme was filmed in the last months of McCorvey's life before her death...

    LA Times ^ | 5/19/2020 | Meredith Blake
    When Norma McCorvey, the anonymous plaintiff in the landmark Roe vs. Wade case, came out against abortion in 1995, it stunned the world and represented a huge symbolic victory for abortion opponents: “Jane Roe” had gone to the other side. For the remainder of her life, McCorvey worked to overturn the law that bore her name. But it was all a lie, McCorvey says in a documentary filmed in the months before her death in 2017, claiming she only did it because she was paid by antiabortion groups including Operation Rescue. “I was the big fish. I think it was...
  • Justice Kavanaugh Suggests He Might Be Willing To Overturn Roe v. Wade

    Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh argued that the principle of stare decisis has never required the court to uphold 'erroneous precedents.' In a case that might appear to have no bearing on the right to abortion, a U.S. Supreme Court justice may have signaled a willingness to overturn Roe v. Wade.In Ramos v. Louisiana, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that criminal defendants must be convicted by unanimous state juries, overturning a Louisiana murder conviction based on a 10-2 jury verdict. This decision overturns the court’s 1972 ruling in Apodaca v. Oregon, which held there is no right to a...

    In the same ruling, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, talked about 'erroneous precedents.' During a recent Supreme Court ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas referred to Roe v. Wade as one of many “incorrect decisions” in relation to the Fourteenth Amendment. Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision, imposed abortion on demand across the United States. In the same context of “incorrect decisions,” Thomas also mentioned the 2015 ruling Obergefell v. Hodges, which guaranteed a “right” to homosexual “marriage.” The final decision Thomas classified as “incorrect” was Dred Scott v. Sandford, according to which the Constitution of the United States was not meant to...

    Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh cited two major abortion-related decisions in a concurring opinion spelling out when "erroneous precedents" ought to be overturned. Monday's majority opinion, authored by Justice Neil Gorsuch, overturned a prior decision about unanimous jury verdicts, striking down state laws in Louisiana and Oregon which allowed people to be convicted of serious crimes with non-unanimous jury votes. The now-reversed 1972 ruling upheld nonunanimous verdicts in state courts. The final vote was 6-3, with a mixture of the court's conservative and liberal justices on both sides, agreeing mostly or in part with the decision. In his concurrence, the...

    Janitor's view ^ | March 28, 2020 | Reasonmclucus
    The people debating the abortion issue falsely assume that there are only two possibilities for ending a pregnancy. Wait for the baby to be born or kill it and remove it. There is a third option which would be acceptable under Roe v. Wade. When the baby is sufficiently developed to survive outside the mother with appropriate medical care any doctor attempting to end the pregnancy could be required to attempt to remove the baby alive. The baby would become a ward of the government which would pay for the operation and subsequent medical care until the baby is adopted....

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened Trump-nominated Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh Wednesday, telling them they will “pay the price” if they uphold a pro-life law from Louisiana that saves babies from abortion and protects women’s health. “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price, Schumer yelled into the mic before a crowd of abortion supporters. “You won’t know what hit you if you go through with these awful decisions,” he added. Responding to the tirade, pro-life Sen. Ben Sasse tore into...

    Illinois Review ^ | January 24, 2020 A.D. | John F Di Leo
    Reflections on the 47th anniversary of Roe V. Wade: What is “family planning?” Most of us think of the term as referring to logical, traditional advice: Don’t have sexual relations until marriage; try to time things so that you don’t have more kids, more quickly, then you can handle; agree on which denomination to raise your children in, early on, so you don’t have fights later… things like that. But since the 1960s and 1970s, Planned Parenthood’s definition of “family planning” has taken over. Planned Parenthood, in fact, basically owns the term. They market themselves as “a family planning organization…”...

    In the United States, abortion is the leading cause of death with almost 1 million abortions per year. Coming upon the 47th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion, has it been worth the cost? Despite the appalling numbers, there are differences among churches about when life must be protected. Below are the top 20 Christian denominations by membership in the U.S. and their stances on abortion. The Catholic Church The Catholic Church opposes abortion.

    President Trump on Friday becomes the first U.S. President to attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., a march he previously addressed via video, a march sure to be ignored by the lamestream media or downplayed as a gathering of white supremacists. It reflects his belief that every human life begins at conception and is a gift from God and reflects the fear, an unspoken motive for impeachment, that Trump will get to appoint more Supreme Court justices forming a majority to overturn the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade, another SCOTUS decision which, like Dred Scott, declared an...

    NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, January 22, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Exactly forty-seven years after the passage of Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion in the U.S., a new Marist poll shows that a strong majority of Americans across the country want to elect candidates who support substantial abortion restrictions. The poll also found that most Americans still reject the Supreme Court’s reasoning in the 1973 case. “Most Americans want the court to reinterpret Roe either by stopping legalized abortion or by returning the issue to the states,” said Knights of Columbus CEO Carl Anderson. The Knights of Columbus is the survey sponsor. According...

    Ahead of a Supreme Court hearing, more than 200 members of Congress have signed on to support Louisiana’s abortion regulations, and have asked the Court to address Roe’s “unworkable” finding of a “right to abortion.” 39 senators and 168 members of the House representing 38 states signed on to an amicus brief filed on Thursday by Americans United for Life, in the case of Gee v. June Medical Services, LLC. The brief argues that Louisiana’s safety regulations on abortion clinics are constitutional. In the brief, the lawmakers “strongly urge the Court to uphold the decision” that kept in place Louisiana’s...

    FULL TITLE: Christine Ford May Face Investigation After Lawyer Admits Abortion Prompted False Attacks on Brett Kavanaugh GOP Sen. Thom Tillis said a new investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual misconduct against Justice Brett Kavanaugh may be appropriate in light of a new book suggesting she had political motives. The North Carolina Republican, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that new video of Ford’s lawyer connecting her allegations with the broader fight over abortion rundermines Ford’s credibility and could necessitate the Justice Department’s intervention. “This does seem to undermine what we all believed...

    WASHINGTON — Moving ahead despite objections, the Trump administration on Friday set a timetable for federally funded family clinics to comply with a new rule that bars them from referring women for abortions. The move is part of a series of efforts to remake government policy on reproductive health to please conservatives who are a key part of President Donald Trump’s political base. Religious conservatives see the family planning program as providing an indirect subsidy to Planned Parenthood, a major abortion provider.

    “We face a real situation where Roe could be overturned. And we know what will happen, which is that women will die. Thousands of women died every year pre-Roe.” — Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, in an interview with WFAA of Dallas, March 6, 2019 [hugesnip] THE FACTS By 1959, a leading researcher wrote: “Abortion is no longer a dangerous procedure. This applies not just to therapeutic abortions as performed in hospitals but also to so-called illegal abortions as done by physicians. In 1957, there were only 260 deaths in the whole country attributed to abortions of any kind....

    Today, NBC published an opinion piece by attorney Michael Conway arguing that several members of the Supreme Court seem to be hinting that the court’s long commitment to Roe v Wade shouldn’t be seen as a guarantee of protection.Those hints came in statements the Justices made in a 7-2 decision revealed Monday. The Gamble v. United States case was a decision about whether a man could be charged twice, once at the state level and once at the federal level, for the same crime without violating double jeopardy. Gamble lost the case, meaning the court decided existing precedent should...

    In a concurring opinion in a Supreme Court case announced Monday, Justice Clarence Thomas issued a lengthy call for his colleagues to overturn "demonstrably erroneous decisions" even if they have been upheld for decades -- prompting legal observers to say Thomas was laying the groundwork to overturn the seminal 1973 case Roe v. Wade, which established a constitutional right to abortion. Thomas' blunt opinion came in Gamble v. United States, a case concerning the so-called "double-jeopardy" doctrine, which generally prohibits an individual from being charged twice for the same crime. But both pro-life and pro-choice advocates quickly noted the implications...
