'Jane Roe' Wants Abortion Case Overturned

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
Now a Christian, the former plaintiff known as "Jane Roe" in the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized abortion, wants the case overturned. In a motion filed recently she asked the courts to consider new evidence that abortion hurts women. Norma McCorvey, who joined the pro-life movement shortly after she became a Christian in 1995, says she regrets her role in Roe v. Wade. She said the Supreme Court's decision is no longer valid because scientific and anecdotal evidence that has come to light in the last 30 years has shown the negative effects of abortion. "We're getting our babies back," a jubilant McCorvey said at a news conference while flanked by about 60 women, some of whom sobbed and held signs that read, "I regret my abortion" and "I feel like the weight of the world has just been lifted off my shoulders." McCorvey's attorney said he could not remember any other historic case in which the plaintiff had asked to have it overturned: "I think the new evidence will show the court what they thought was goodwill turned out to be an instrument of wrong." McCorvey, 55, filed the motion with the federal district court in Dallas, which ruled to legalize abortion in Texas before the Supreme Court ruling. McCorvey is founder and director of Roe No More Ministry. (From Charisma News Service)

In the meantime, how many babies have not been aborted! May it be more than just regret with McCorvey, but may there be genuine mourning for the death of thousands of babies, and may God forgive this great crime.
