'Jane Roe' Goes to Court for the Unborn

Nearly three decades after the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide, the original plaintiff in the landmark Roe v. Wade case is urging a federal court to reconsider the 1973 Supreme Court decision. "My case was wrongfully decided and has caused great harm to the women and children of our nation," said Norma McCorvey, better known as "Jane Roe," who had a change of heart about abortion in the years after the Supreme Court ruling.

McCorvey and Sandra Cano (of the Roe companion case, Doe v. Bolton) filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a class action lawsuit May 31 in the federal Third Circuit Court of Appeals, CNSNews.com reported June 1. McCorvey and Cano want their respective cases overturned so that the class action suit against abortion providers can proceed.
