Feds Cancel Norma’s Oral Arguments
Court Cancels Roe V. Wade Consideration
SAN ANTONIO – Oral arguments on a motion to reconsider the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion 31 years ago have been canceled by a federal appeals court, which will now only review written pleadings in the case. Monday’s move represented an about-face by justices on giving Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade fame a chance to argue before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that her landmark abortion case should be reopened and reversed. Former plaintiff Norma McCorvey of Dallas, who challenged Texas’ abortion ban under the pseudonym Jane Roe, has contended that the case should be re-decided in light of evidence that the procedure may harm women.
