Essential Estrogen: Roe v. Wade Plaintiff to Campaign for Sam Brownback in Ames

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Norma McCorvey, known to most as "Jane Roe" in the landmark medical
privacy case Roe v. Wade, will show her support for Kansas Sen. Sam
Brownback during the Ames Straw Poll on Saturday. "Sam Brownback is
the right person, in the right place at the right time for our nation
as we seek to embrace a culture of life," she said in a prepared
statement. "I call on pro-life Iowans to voter for Senator Brownback
in Ames this Saturday. Our nation needs a president with strength,
courage and moral fortitude -- one who will lead our society on a path
that respects human life and dignity." In 1970, McCorvey was the
plaintiff in a case challenging a Texas law prohibiting abortion. At
that time, she had claimed her pregnancy was the result of gang rape,
a statement she has since declared a lie.
