‘Jane Roe’ talks about the murder of Dr. George Tiller

I once interviewed Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade, who has become a fierce pro-life activist. In the above video, she speaks with On Faith’s Sally Quinn, who’s gotten some time on this blog. Quinn transitions seamlessly from McCorvey’s beautiful hair to her not wanting that baby that had been inside of her; McCorvey, who like most pro-life activists condemns the murder of that “executioner of children” Dr. George Tiller, talks about her religious background and offers to pray with her interviewer.

No real new ground here, but it’s worth the eight minutes to hear the reflections of Jane Roe.

I can’t see I agree with her perspective on feminists—“They don’t believe in God. They believe in killing children.”—but I can appreciate that her experiences have narrowed her understanding of the word to pro-choice activists.
