    Norma Roe didn't really change her mind

    It pains me to bring this up, but in the spirit of honesty, I need to because it's been a major pro-life talking point.

    It turns out that "Norma Roe" admitted shortly before her death that she never really changed her mind, but was paid by Operation Rescue to denounce abortion. So it looks like this argument needs to be avoided from now on.

    Mild language in article.

    It's not 100% clear what their involvement was. Scott Roeder has claimed from prison that Operation Rescue has been less than truthful in their claiming to have nothing to do with him. Either way, I believe pro lifers should steer away from groups willing to utilize dishonesty, most notably also including Project Veritas.

    "(I)ncluding Operation Rescue." I'd like to know what other Pro-Life liars were involved.

    The article referenced Rob Schenck and his change of view. I'd never heard of him -- or if I did hear, had no recollection at all of his name. I found this NYT article wherein he details his complete abandonment of the Pro-Life cause. Certainly it's a tear-jerker, but to me, nothing in it remotely justifies leaving the Pro-Life -- or if one prefers, the Anti-Abortion -- cause.

    A major disappointment to read.
