Reversal of Roe v. Wade?

Apparently that's what the "Roe" half (Norma McCorvey) is hoping and filing for. Big hat tip to blogging newbie LifeSteward for his posting about her press conference today.

WorldNetDaily reports as follows:

As WorldNetDaily reported, Norma McCorvey began a quest in 2003 to reopen the case, based on changes in law and new scientific research that make the prior decision "no longer just." She cites the sworn testimony of more than 1,000 women who say they were hurt by abortion.

At a news conference at the Supreme Court tomorrow at 11 a.m. Eastern, McCorvey will announce she wants the high court to reverse Roe vs. Wade, or at least, order a trial on the merits.

"This is the day I've longed for," she said in a statement issued by her legal representation, the San Antonio-based Justice Foundation.

"Now we know so much more, and I plead with the court to listen to the witnesses and re-evaluate Roe vs. Wade," McCorvey said. "It was a dreadful day in America when the Supreme Court allowed a woman to kill her own child."

What perfect timing, as evangelicals nation wide kick-off Sanctity of Life Week this week, focusing on (what else?) the sanctity of human life as provided by God.

Other bloggers who are discussing Ms. McCorvey's press conference include:

There are more, and if I've left you off, let me know and I'll add you to the list. Where is this in the news you ask? I'm offended! This IS the news, my friend!
