Roe and Doe are perfect examples. Jane Roe, Norma Jane McCorvey was used by the liberals to get abortion on demand, but from their point of view, like unborn babies, she was expendable. Here's what Norma says about Sarah Weddington, the lawyer who argued the Supreme Court case that enshrined abortion-on-demand in our country:
"On many occasions, Sarah Weddington had made it clear that to her I was nothing more than a name in a class-action lawsuit. Jane Roe was all that mattered to Sarah; the real Norma McCorvey was irrelevant.”
"The truth came out in that interview. Sarah confessed, ‘I don’t care about Norma McCorvey. I care about Jane Roe. Norma McCorvey was just a name on a class-action lawsuit.’”
“As Sarah Weddington presented my case, she used the fact that I had claimed to have become pregnant through a gang rape. The public had certain misgivings about abortion in the early seventies, but there was much greater acceptance of abortion in cases of rape.…"
"The affidavit did not happen the way I said it did, pure and simple. I lied! Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee needed an extreme case to make their client look pitiable…Sarah knew the truth, the real truth, long before she ever went to the Supreme Court in 1971. Yes, the stated reason for my abortion is based upon a lie, a great lie. So the entire abortion industry is based on a lie."And then there was Sandra Cano, Mary Doe, the plaintiff in the companion case, Doe vs. Bolton that broke pregnancy down into "trimesters" and enshrined abortion for no reason in the first six months and any reason in the last three. Sandra was a seventeen year old when she married her husband, a very troubled man. She finally sought divorce when she was pregnant with her fourth child. Her mistake was seeking help from Legal Aid in Atlanta where she was pressured to abort her baby by civil rights lawyer Margie Pitts Hames. Hames wanted to use Cano to secure abortin and had her sign an affidavit telling her the case was about "women's rights." She pressured Sandra to abort her baby and, under relentless pressure from the unscrupulous Hames, she finally fled with her children to her grandmother in Oklahoma. No problem for Hames, she just made up the entire story fabricating Sandra's desire for abortion.
Here's what Sandra said, years later, when she saw the file of the case:
"I am against abortion; I never sought an abortion; I have never had an abortion. Abortion is murder. … The Doe v. Bolton case is based on deceit and fraud."She described herself saying:
“uneducated, and naive, I was taken advantage of by an aggressive self-serving attorney, Margie Pitts Hames, the legal-aid attorney. I never wanted an abortion.”Progressives believe that the end justifies the means so they are willing to lie and lie and lie. They weave their webs and illustrate what Hamlet said:
That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain.Sandra Fluke is just the latest patsy for the liberal/progressive left. When she's outlived her usefulness, she'll be dropped on the ash heap. Pray for her. In the process, she's made a fool of herself.
