"Jane Roe" Arrested at Sotomayor Hearing
CBS News ^ | 7/13/2009 | Paul Kane

Posted on 07/14/2009 4:34:45 AM PDT by Notwithstanding

The woman known as "Jane Roe" in the landmark Supreme Court abortion case Roe v. Wade was reportedly arrested today at Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor's Senate confirmation hearing.

Norma McCorvey is best known for her role in the 1973 court ruling that secured a woman's right to an abortion. Years after the pivotal case, McCorvey recanted her support for abortion rights and became an active anti-abortion demonstrator.

Good for Norma. Imagine the fawning and sympathetic 24/7 coverage this would get if it had been a pro-abortion protester who was similarly arrested (e.g. the wife of the murdered murderer abortionist Tiller)...

I haven’t forgotten that the democrats invited Klan Pink to things like the Bush State of the union address for the sole purpose of disrupting it.

Was she “targeted” to be arrested?? Was she being OVER rowdy?? Does Free Speech exist or have we all been driven to places like FR where we are “safe” from arrest...at least for now.

I’m going off on a tangent, here, nothing about the arrest, but about Sotomayor’s statement to the nomination committee yesterday. I submit that she purgered herself to get the seat.

She told the senators on the committee that she believes in strictly following the law. However, her rulings and her off-bench statements all belie that position. She is a noted judicial activist who believes in bringing things not associated with the law into the courtroom.

So, either she was lying then, or she was lying yesterday. Either way, she committed purgery and proved (again!) that she is unfit to sit on the SCOTUS!!

In fact isn't that why she has been overturned in higher courts, precisely because her rulings have been outside the law.

Great post! But please note: ‘perjured’ is the correct spelling for what Sotomayor did to herself.

McCorvey allegedly interrupted Al Franken, by calling out that Sotomayor was “wrong about abortion.”

Sotamayor was an involved and ardent supporter of various legal efforts including several Supreme Court briefs arguing for "unlimited" legal abortions for "any" reason throughout pregnancy and for taxpayer funding of abortions.

Sotamayor is a Formal Heretic of the Catholic religion and a dubious person, obviously. Of course, she is in like company in her professional field and most likely in her coming position as a Supreme Court Justice. There is not, nor has their been, a single Supreme Court justice who is willing to admit the personhood of unborn little boys and girls. She denies the dignity of the human person.

“Too late smart, but better late than never.”

Norma was USED in Roe v. Wade. I’ve always prayed that this is overturned because of the LIE that she admitted.
So many lives lost to a LIE. Norma’s conversion is a step in that direction.

Code Pink Lunatic Attacks Condoleezza Rice

Down the page, within another article with no link:

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino, referencing the incident and calling it “despicable,” said it “seems that, increasingly, Congress is being run by Code Pink.”

The anti-war group’s members are often arrested on Capitol Hill for disrupting congressional hearings and events.

I know and I agree. If it hadn’t been her, it would have been somebody else. She deserves to be commended and rewarded for what she is doing.

Thank you. I realized that I had misspelled 'perjury' after I hit the "Post" button.

Truth is, a very tiny percentage of people know that Norma (Roe) had a conversion following that famous trial, and is now a powerful activist against abortion. A fact that the media kind of has a pact not to talk about. Still trying to use her and her case to trumpet the cause to keep abortion legal.

It’s only perjury if you’re conservative. You didn’t get the memo?

Did Norma ever get to see the child she gave up for adoption about 1972?

When women have an abortion, they KNOW they are killing a child, either before, or shortly after - the knowledge sinks in.

From what I’ve seen, most become ardent, vehement “pro-choicers” - spending the rest of their lives justifying what they did as “their right”, and encouraging others to exercise “their right” to do the same, so that they alone aren’t guilty in their “choice”.

There are those, however, like Norma, who repent, and spend the rest of their lives making up for what they did, trying to SAVE lives.

Prayers up for Norma. It takes a lot of courage to repent of such a sin and put the guilt at the foot of the Cross.

Sadly, I’ve seen more of the silent suffering. Rachel’s Vineyard is the recovery program for men and women alike.

We pray for this holocaust to end daily.

I saw Norma speak in California a few months ago. I don’t remember if she ever saw her child. I do remember that she was positive she had done the right thing to give up the child for adoption. Norma was really messed up with substance abuse for a long time, and is really a “diamond in the rough” sort of person, and did not come across to me as the brightest bulb in the room. I think she probably did the right thing, and that, given the challenges she will always have in her life, prayers that she will always have good and true friends to help her would be most appropriate.

It’s just a total lack of substance beyond their own little daily activities. Many actually think that someone like Obama or Hillary is there to “watch over” them. It’s ludicrous if it weren’t so tragic.

I, too, saw and heard Norma speak in California about five years ago. She touched my heart, and hers is a story of amazing grace. I know it broke her heart that she allowed herself to be so used. Though she's slowing down like me, (in her 60s)I don't think she'll ever stop trying to overturn the horrible decision that was Roe v. Wade.
