Florida, October 23, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Nearly 40 years ago, as a young, pregnant woman, Norma McCorvey played an instrumental part in the Supreme Court decision that brought legal abortion to America. Now McCorvey, the ‘Roe’ in the Roe v. Wade case, has released an ad urging voters not to vote for Obama.
McCorvey became a Christian in 1995 and has since repudiated her role in Roe v. Wade, campaigning for its reversal.
The ad is set to air in Florida, and is backed by Randall Terry, the pro-life activist who is running for office on the Democratic ticket in several states. Terry’s political campaigning is aimed primarily at exploiting a legal loophole that requires TV stations to run his political ads, which include graphic abortion imagery.

In her ad, McCorvey says the Roe v. Wade decision was based upon a “lie” and urges citizens to vote against Obama.
“I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America.
“I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie.
“Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave.
“Please, don’t follow in my mistakes. DO NOT vote for Barack Obama. He murders babies.”
The ad concludes with Randall Terry saying: “I approve this message.”
The commercial also contains graphic abortion images.
President Obama has consistently voted in favor of abortion, earning him the label of “most pro-abortion president” in U.S. history by pro-life groups across the country. Pro-life activists have especially highlighted his support for partial birth abortion – a procedure in which a baby is killed while only his head remains in his mother’s body – and his repeated votes against an Illinois bill that would have protected babies born alive after failed abortions from being killed.
“Norma McCorvey is a burr in the saddle of the baby killers; and she may help throw Obama out of the saddle,” said Terry in a statement about the ad.
“This ad could help bring down Obama in the closing days of this campaign - please God - make it so.”
While graphic abortion images and pro-life messages are usually barred by most television stations, election season brings the opportunity to bypass the stonewalling. Television stations must comply with FCC rules that dictate all political candidates’ ads must be run in their entirety as long as they are paid for.
