Sotomayor: Roe Is Settled Law

The wingnuts are gonna go ballistic. Wheee!!

UPDATE: “Jane Roe” herself was arrested at yesterday’s hearing.

Norma McCorvey, 61, of Texas, better known as “Jane Roe,” began screaming that Sotomayor was “wrong” about abortion during the opening statement of the newest member of the Senate, Al Franken, D-Minn. McCorvey’s suit led to the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. But in recent years, she switched sides to speak out against abortion. Capitol Police identified the other three arrested as: Robert James, from Virginia; Andrew Beacham of Indiana; and Francis Mahoney of Florida. Police did not provide their hometowns. The first outburst came during Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s opening statement. A man in the back of the room interrupted the California Democrat’s remarks by shouting: “Senator! What about the unborn!” He called abortion “genocide.”
