‘Jane Roe’ Arrested

The woman from the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade was arrested today among other antiabortion protesters for disrupting the first day of Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings. Norma McCorvey, the 61-year-old referred to as Jane Roe in the 1973 case that established a woman’s right to an abortion, interrupted Senator Al Franken’s opening remarks before being arrested alongside three other protesters.
