Ron Paul Endorsed by Jane Roe, yes, THAT Roe

“What a coincidence!

On the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s historic Roe vs. Wade abortion ruling, the Roe of that landmark legal case endorsed libertarian turned Republican Rep. Ron Paul for president. Paul, a 10-term Texas congressman from the Houston area, is a 72-year-old Air Force veteran and ob-gyn who has surprised many political observers with the fervor of his bands of followers, not to mention his campaign’s fundraising prowess that has outshined other Republican so-called front-runners.

“Jane Roe,” whose real name is Norma McCorvey, turned against abortion a decade ago. In her endorsement Tuesday she said, “I support Ron Paul for president because we share the same goal, that of overturning Roe v. Wade. He has never wavered….on the issue of being pro-life and has a voting record to prove it. He understands the importance of civil liberties for all, including the unborn.”

Not surprisingly, Paul accepted the endorsement and said, “As much as I talk about economic liberties, and civil liberties and trying to avoid the killing overseas, I think the issue of life is paramount.”

  2. Chris Anderson Says:

    And meanwhile the Louisiana GOP set up the pro-Life/pro-family slate (consisting of Giuliani, Romney, McCain, and Huckabee) to run against Ron Paul in their caucus. This just shows again that people can be easily manipulated when they aren’t aware of the facts. Do you vote for a 4 candidate slate, each with sketchy, often pro-choice records but that are labeled “pro-life,” or do you vote for Ron Paul a decisively pro-life, former ob-gyn who seeks to overturn Roe v. Wade? It’s a tough one folks, I know.
