The woman at the center of the Supreme Court's landmark 1973 abortion rights ruling was arrested today at the confirmation hearing for Sonia Sotomayor, among a wave of anti-abortion protestors who lined the sidewalks outside the Senate office buildings and several of whom made it into the hearing room in an attempt to disrupt the proceedings.
Norma McCorvey, 61, of Texas, better known as "Jane Roe" in the famous Roe v. Wade case from January 1973, was arrested after she and another protester started began during the opening statement of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), according to Capitol Police.

I’m amazed that the Washington comPost covered this.
Not really as McCorvey never had and abortion and was snookered, and paid if I remember right, by an attorney. She really never had much to do with the case. Google her story as it’s interesting.
Please refresh our memories. What do you mean that she never had an abortion? Did she give up her child for adoption?
McCorvey lived a raw life during that time...(& she had the baby, did not abort it)...
..later in life, she had a life changing experience & accepted Christ as savior.
..She is a new woman....and tries to undo the wrong done in her name.
I believe so. By the time the ruling came down it was too late anyway.
If it hadn’t been her it would have been someone else.
She was a means to an end.
..it was many years before she 'saw the light' and repented the errors of her past life.
A pro-life Christian little girl is actually the one who engaged Norma's heart & she was eventually led to the Heavenly Father and found forgiveness.
