WASHINGTON – The plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, who became an anti-abortion protester in recent years, was among four protesters arrested Monday for disrupting Sonia Sotomayor’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
Better known as “Jane Roe,” 61-year-old Norma McCorvey of Texas began screaming during the opening statement of the newest senator, Al Franken, D-Minn.
McCorvey’s suit led to the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, but she later became an anti-abortion protester.
McCorvey shouted that Sotomayor was “wrong about abortion.”
