Jane Roe has an Announcement to Make

Jane Roe, the "Roe" in Roe vs. Wade, and whose real name is Norma Leah McCorvey, will be making an announcement tomorrow. From National Review:

WASHINGTON, DC – On Tuesday, January 22 – the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision – Texas Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will hold a press conference with pro-life activist Norma Leah McCorvey. McCorvey, who runs Crossing over Ministry, is "Jane Roe" of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.

What/Who: Announcement by Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe") and Congressman Ron Paul

Is the announcement that Ms. McCorvey will endorse Dr. Paul? I guess we'll have to tune in tomorrow to find out.

I had not heard about this. I do not care if she endorses Ron Paul and I suspect most will not either.

I might venture to say that it may be more to do with the fact that she wants Roe v Wade repealed since her point has always been that that decision was meant for her personally, not to become a national law.

I would disagree with you to a limited extent on this point. Huckabee is not raising the money that he had anticipated after winning in Iowa, his 2nd place finish in SC doesn't bode well for him since he needs wins, not 2nd place finishes, as opposed to Romney for example. He doesn't have the resources to make it much further.

Where are those evangelicals and others whom abortion is their key issue going to go? Romney? Unlikely. Rudy? Not at all. McCain? Maybe. What about the OB/GYN who is the only candidate making an appearance with Roe from Roe vs Wade tomorrow, which is the 35th Anniversary of that SC decision.
