Jane Roe of Roe vs. Wade admits she lied about rape

Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy nationwide, admitted that he lied when she claimed her pregnancy resulted from rape. Her lawyers, she says, were aware of the lie:

“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. Rape seemed to be the ticket. What made rape even worse? A gang rape! It all started out as a little lie. I said what I needed to say. But my little lie grew and grew and became more horrible with each telling. …It was good for the cause! It read well in the newspapers. … The lie became the truth these past twenty-five years. …

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.”
