‘Jane Roe’ requests that Supreme Court reverse Roe vs. Wade

.- "Jane Roe" – whose case first legalized abortion on demand 32 years ago – has formally petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse Roe v. Wade.

Norma McCorvey’s case cites the sworn testimony of more than 1,000 women hurt by abortion and 5,300 pages of evidence from medical professionals, reported Jeremy Reynalds, a freelance writer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

McCorvey petitioned the court Jan. 14 and is still awaiting a reply. She says that if the court is unwilling to reverse the decision it should at least order a trial on the case’s merits, reported Reynalds.

“It was a dreadful day in America when the Supreme Court allowed a woman to kill her own child," said McCorvey in a news release from The Justice Foundation, the San Antonio-based non-profit, public interest law firm that has taken on the case.

"Now we know so much more, and I plead with the Court to listen to the witnesses and re-evaluate Roe v. Wade,” said McCorvey, who worked in abortion facilities and said she’s seen firsthand “the horrific nature of abortion and its devastation to women and girls."

Abortion has been known to result in a number of emotional complications for women, including personality changes, numbness, rage, ongoing mental anguish, and suicidal thoughts, reported Reynalds.

The Justice Foundation reports that a significant change in most state laws now provides an alternative to abortion, allowing a woman to take her newborn to a "safe haven" anonymously, with no questions asked if no harm is done to the baby.
