Jane Roe airs catholic commercial against Roe V. Wade

So watching TV this morning and saw this add. Apparently Norma McCorvey (Jan Roe from ROE v. Wade court case) has become a Catholic and has put out a commercial for the Diocese against the court case she was a part of. This aired originally in 2009/2010 and still airs regionally in a few places (here being one of them, which shocks me).

(I attempted to embed the youtube link, but apparently I have forgotten. I thought it was whatever happens after the v= but I'm thinking I'm wrong. Anyway, I have to run off and do stuff so instead of investigating the proper way further, I'm just putting the whole youtube address up :) )

Thoughts? Obviously this hasn't had a big effect nation wide, but do you think it will have any effect in the long run?

She has been an anti abortion advocate for years now. Her story is routinely trotted out by that crowd to make the point that all women regret their abortions. She's an odd duck, she had a lot of issues during Roe v Wade, I believe she had addiction issues, then she found Jesus. I think she is a rather fragile person who has been pulled in a lot of directions by people on all sides of the issue.

I don't think this will have much of an impact either way. If she hadn't been Jane Roe, someone else would have and we would still have abortion in this country.

For her sake, I hope she finds peace about her past. If she really does think that abortion is murder and that she is somehow personally responsible for it being legalized, she must be really fucked up inside.

I'm torn between pitying Norma McCorvey and reviling her. On one hand, she's an adult with a brain. On the other hand, she had a rough upbringing and made a lot of bad, life-impacting decisions at an early age. And I think many, many people (Flip Benham, for one) have used her to further their own causes. In addition to her anti-choice activities, she's also an "ex"-lesbian.

Yep. It seems to me that she has never learned who she is and just follows whoever is leading. In that sense she is much like the fundie kids who have not learned a sense of self.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
