New Legal Strategy in Challenging Roe vs. Wade Decision

HSLDA members have brought our attention to the recent efforts by the Justice Foundation (Formerly the Texas Justice Foundation). This firm is representing Norma McCorvey, who was the "Roe" of Roe v. Wade, and Sandra Cano who was the "Doe" of Doe v. Bolton. Both of these ladies are now seeking to overturn the decision that brought abortion to America.
