Norma McCorvey was arrested while protesting President Zero at Notre Dame. It was little mentioned in the media and if so, buried in an article. Why it isn’t headline news is beyond me, well not really, since much of the MSM are openly disciples of The One. So what, just another citizen arrested while exercising her right to free speech over abortion.
I did not know that Norma McCorvey is the “Jane Roe” of the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion case.
Quick summary from wikipedia:
The Roe v. Wade case took three years of trials to reach the United States Supreme Court. In the meantime, McCorvey had not aborted, but had given birth to the baby in question. In the case, she claimed that her pregnancy was the result of rape. She now claims that to have been untrue.
In the 1980s, McCorvey revealed herself to be the “Jane Roe” of the famous case, and that she had been the “pawn” of two young and ambitious lawyers (Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee) who were looking for a plaintiff with whom they could challenge the Texas state law prohibiting abortion. In her 1994 autobiography, I Am Roe (her first book), she wrote of her sexuality. For many years she had lived quietly in Dallas, Texas with her long-time partner, Connie Gonzales. “We’re not like other lesbians, going to bars,” she said in a New York Times interview. “We’re lesbians by ourselves. We’re homers.”
Wow, I never knew. Roe was a lesbian. Roe claimed she was raped, later claiming that was not true. She even gave birth to the baby!(and gave it up for adoption). She claims to have been a pawn to ambitious lawyers. (Probably the type John Edwards patterned his career after.)
Those were the circumstances of such a huge case as Roe v. Wade? Wow, that has surely cheapened the merit of the landmark case for me. Sounds like flimsy cheap left wing circumstances, detached from reality. Nothing new here. Here I thought it was a hard fought case with some sort of solid claims. What was I thinking?
More importantly, Roe(McCorvey) at some point realized how precious life is and has become a pro life advocate(isn’t it silly we even have to point out someone who may prefer life?).
Even more shocking(but then again it isn’t) is that this isn’t all over the news. If it were reverse, where some “conservative” in a landmark case “saw the light” and switched to a left wing view, they’d be plastered all over the news. (Kinda like Ronald Reagan Jr used and abused ooster boy for a time by the left as the “gotcha” to Reagan Sr and conservatism, but shame on them, Jr was probably never even close to being a conservative in the first place).
She wrote in her book, Won by Love,
“I was sitting in O.R.’s offices when I noticed a fetal development poster. The progression was so obvious, the eyes were so sweet. It hurt my heart, just looking at them. I ran outside and finally, it dawned on me. ‘Norma,’ I said to myself, ‘They’re right.’ I had worked with pregnant women for years. I had been through three pregnancies and deliveries myself. I should have known. Yet something in that poster made me lose my breath. I kept seeing the picture of that tiny, 10-week-old embryo, and I said to myself, that’s a baby! It’s as if blinders just fell off my eyes and I suddenly understood the truth–that’s a baby!
“I felt crushed under the truth of this realization. I had to face up to the awful reality. Abortion wasn’t about ‘products of conception.’ It wasn’t about ‘missed periods.’ It was about children being killed in their mother’s wombs. All those years I was wrong. Signing that affidavit, I was wrong. Working in an abortion clinic, I was wrong. No more of this first trimester, second trimester, third trimester stuff. Abortion–at any point–was wrong. It was so clear. Painfully clear.”
This reminded me of something. Did anyone go to the “Bodyworlds” exhibition? Where the human anatomy was preserved and displayed in great detail. Well, they had a human development display with fetuses in jars in chronological order of development. I was amazed at how early on in the process an infant looks and functions as a little human. I then thought, wow!, every woman’s choice abortionist or anyone contemplating abortion should have to step up to a long line of these jars and point to the one where they believe life begins and deserves the same opportunity of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness that we all enjoy. Since we should all err on the side of life, every abortionist should have to at least make a case that the fetus isn’t human at whatever point in development they believe in abortion, instead of claiming some fuzzy woman’s choice propaganda.
They stole the power from pro life people and transformed the argument into a woman’s right to choose without having to be accountable and answer the hard question of when life actually begins! I have been in discussions with abortionists and when I ask them to point to a jar and tell me when life begins they say that does not matter! It’s comical but very sad. They usually spout off the brainwashed talking points like, well you never have to know how a woman’s health may be in danger or rape or blah blah. Yes, real life sucks sometimes but those EXCEPTIONS(did you notice liberals best arguments are always exceptions to the “rule”?) are nothing but RATIONALIZATIONS for the taking of life, not a valid argument of whether it is life or not. When I point that out, it’s silence and then “Well Bush…..!”
This is amazing and a WTF! Duh! moment all at the same time. This confirms my belief that many peoples politics are separate from their real life. The left spouts off these talking points like good conformists. Ironic that they think they are such individualists. (I laughed at a cartoon where liberals are bragging how different and unique they are, just like everyone else.)
When confronted with real choices and real facts such as a poster, many people would make different decisions if they attempted to comtemplate the reality of their political beliefs.
It tells me that liberalism is pretty much a result of brain washing cult. Brainwashed people automatically reciting the repeated talking points without even thinking, manchurian like. No real life, factual basis, just repeating what has been drummed into their heads.
It’s a good lesson for a 42yr old like me, to do some research for the information I never get from the MSM and it’s most important to focus on the things they and our liberal left elected elite DON’T talk aobut, rather than the smokescreen propaganda they DO talk about.
How the heck did killing unborn humans be allowed to morph into a euphemistic argument over a woman’s right to choose anyway?
Next time you get some brainwashed ‘right to choose’ robot, make them point to a jar and tell you why.
