We all know that Planned Parenthood, other abortion mills and all their affiliates lie, cheat, steal and murder. They have now produced a propaganda piece that is circulating about Norma MCCorvey saying that Norma was paid by pro-life organizations to lie about being pro-life. Below is a statement from Troy Newman refuting this documentary and all its lies.
Wichita, KS (May 21, 2020) Operation Rescue has joined with other national pro-life leaders, who personally knew Norma McCorvey, in signing an open letter to the FX filmmakers who produced a documentary on Norma’s life called “AKA Jane Roe.”
We maintain that media allegations that Norma McCorvey was paid to lie about being pro-life are completely false. We urge everyone who watches the production to do so with a healthy amount of skepticism in this day of agenda-driven “Fake News.”

Responding to massive media coverage calling Norma McCorvey’s life into question, people who knew her say the media’s conclusions are taking her life out of context – perhaps on purpose – in advance of the Friday, May 22 airing of the program.
Below is a recent press release from Operation Rescue about their new and improved website abortiondocs.org .
Wichita, KS – Operation Rescue is pleased to announce that it has launched a new version of the website AbortionDocs.orgthat is bigger, faster, and more user-friendly than ever.
After realizing that no accurate listing of U.S. abortion facilities existed anywhere, Operation Rescue began the daunting task of identifying every abortion facility in the nation in 2009, a list that has been continually updated since then.
Because of this research, Operation Rescue conceived the idea of a website that could maintain an accurate listing of abortion facilities by state and act as a depository for documentation about each facility and known abortionist.
AbortionDocs.org first debuted in 2012 as the largest archive of source documents related to abortion facilities and abortion providers on the web. Since then, the document archive has grown to nearly 21,000 documents, with more being added daily.
“AbortionDocs.org is a valuable resource for the public where documentation about abortion facilities can be easily accessed in one place that would otherwise take someone years to compile,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “There isn’t a lot on commentary on the web site. It has source documents so people can read for themselves about the abuses found at abortion facilities across the nation and reach their own conclusions.”
Each year, Operation Rescue conducts a survey of every abortion facility in the nation and uses this data to make sure AbortionDocs.org is as accurate as possible. Through this research, Operation Rescue has documented the decline of the abortion industry in America.
In 1991, there were 2,176 known surgical abortion facilities in the U.S. Today, there are only 470 surgical and 236 abortion pill-only clinics, for a total of 706 abortion facilities in the U.S. This represents a 68 percent reduction in the number of abortion facilities over the past 28 years.
Through AbortionDocs.org, Operation Rescue has also tracked the increasing tread of abortion pill usage. Facilities that conduct abortions via the abortion pill only now account for about one-third of all abortion facilities in the nation.
The newly designed AbortionDocs.orgis quicker, has improved search capabilities, and allows for greater organization of documents.
In addition to AbortionDocs.org, Operation Rescue also operates two other informative websites. These include OperationRescue.org, which serves as our main informational platform, and our newest site, Abortion911.com, which is an archive of hundreds of documented abortion-related medical emergencies at abortion facilities around the nation.
Washington, D.C. – In a concurring opinion in the Gamble v. United States decision released on Monday, June 17, 2019, Justice Clarence Thomas discussed at some length “the proper role of the doctrine stare decisis,” in what many court-watchers believe may be an attempt prepare the Court to overturn precedents such as the 1973 Roe v. Wadedecision that inserted a manufactured “right” to abortion into the Constitution.
Justice Thomas opined that the current application of stare decisis “elevates demonstrably erroneous decisions” over the actual text of the Constitution and that overruling those errant decisions would return stare decisis to its proper role.
Justice Thomas wrote:
In my view, the Court’s typical formulation of the stare decisis standard does not comport with our judicial duty under Article III because it elevates demonstrably erroneous decisions-meaning decisions outside the realm of permissible interpretation-over the text of the Constitution and other duly enacted federal law. It is always “tempting for judges to confuse our own preferences with the requirements of the law”. . . and the Court’s stare decisis doctrine exacerbates that temptation by giving the veneer of respectability to our continued application of demonstrably incorrect precedents. By applying demonstrably erroneous precedent instead of the relevant law’s text-as the Court is particularly prone to do when expanding federal power or crafting new individual rights-the Court exercises “force” and “will,” two attributes the People did not give it. . .We should restore ourstare decisis jurisprudence to ensure that we exercise “mer[e] judgment,” . . . which can be achieved through adherence to the correct, original meaning of the laws we are charged with applying. In my view, anything less invites arbitrariness into judging.
The following reaction to Justice Thomas’ statements is attributable to Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
For years, those of us that oppose abortion have strongly believed that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided because it created a fallacious “right” to abortion out of whole cloth. I very much support Justice Thomas’ view ofstare decisis and the need to dispense with rulings that have manufactured “rights” that the Constitution never established, including abortion.
Years ago, we had a saying to the effect that if the womb had a window, abortion would never be tolerated. Today, with the advent of ever-improving ultrasound technology and advances in the field of fetology, we now have that ‘window in the womb’ that shows us clearly that the pre-born baby is a distinct, individual human being that should be accorded the same legal protections that the rest of us enjoy. I look forward to the day when Roe v. Wade is swept into the dustbin of history where it belongs – which may now be sooner than later.
St. Louis, MO – A hearing for a preliminary injunction that would bar the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services enforcing licensing laws and regulations regarding Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood in St. Louis has been completed and taken under advisement by Judge Michael Stelzer.
RHS Planned Parenthood is the last remaining abortion facility in Missouri. If no preliminary injunction is issued, it is believed that its facility license will expire and Missouri will become the first abortion-free state since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
If Stelzer issues a preliminary, RHS Planned Parenthood would be allowed to continue conducting surgical abortions even though it does not currently meet licensing laws and regulations.
“The Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis is among the worst in the nation with at least 74 medical emergencies documented there that have required ambulance transport to the hospital,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “If it is allowed to continue abortions without meeting the requirements set by law, there are grave concerns that more women will be seriously injured or even killed due to the substandard practices at this abortion facility.”
Washington, DC – Since the passage of several state laws that ban abortion either entirely, as in the Alabama ban, or early in pregnancy at six to eight weeks gestation, as in Ohio, Georgia, and Missouri, there has been much talk of how the U.S. Supreme Court will take up one or more of these new laws and finally overturn Roe v. Wade.
Barring some unexpected Supreme Court declaration that pre-born babies should be treated as “persons” under the Constitution, simply overturning Roe would revert the decision whether or not to allow abortion to each state.
In anticipation that the newly conservative Supreme Court may nullify Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood and other abortionists have been carefully laying out a backup plan in the event that Roe falls — one that has already been partially implemented.
It involves the interstate dispensing abortion pills by mail.
Nearly 1,000 pro-life supporters had gathered in front of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Friday, May 10, 2019, to protest the bullying of pro-life activists by State Rep. Brian Sims. But after the protest was over and the crowd had cleared the streets, an ambulance was dispatched to that same Planned Parenthood facility.
One pro-life supporter, Antonio Calimano, captured the incident on video.
At approximately 3:00 p.m., an ambulance arrived at the Planned Parenthood facility on Locust Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Emergency responders can be seen in Calimano’s video pushing a woman in a wheelchair out to the ambulance. She was loaded into the ambulance’s side door before being transported, apparently to a nearby hospital.
“We question whether this Planned Parenthood delayed calling an ambulance for this woman until after they thought all the pro-lifers had left for the day. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a Planned Parenthood delayed calling for emergency medical assistance,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, which documents such emergencies at abortion facilities.
“This is another example of just how dangerous abortions really are. Planned Parenthood tells the public that abortions are the safest ‘procedure,’ yet hundreds of documented medical emergencies at the abortion facilities themselves debunk that false narrative,” said Newman. “We pray that every abortion facility in America is closed down so women and their babies will no longer suffer from the barbaric practice of abortion.”

Given the new efforts in New York and other states controlled by radical Democrats to expand late-term abortions and even legalize infanticide, an archeology report published earlier this month takes on new, present-day application.
What does archeology have to do with late-term abortion or infanticide? That answer lies in the similarities of between what we are seeing in the Abortion Cartel today and what archeologists have recently discovered at the site of the largest known child sacrifice event in the world.
The disturbing archeological report detailed excavations at a Peruvian site known as Huanchaquito-Las Llamas.
Even archeologists were shocked at the scope of the site and heartbreaking skeletal remains of 137 children – little barefoot boys and girls ages 5-14 that had been sacrificed by the Chimú culture around 1450 AD.

Westland, MI – One woman who reportedly had three previous abortions, rolled the dice one more time for a fourth abortion at Northland Family Planning, an abortion facility in Westland, Michigan.
This time, her luck ran out.
According to an EMS Pre-Hospital Care Report on file at the Westland Fire Department, a woman received an elective abortion at Northland Family Planning in Westland, Michigan, on December 8, 2018.
But this time, something went wrong during the abortion, and an ambulance was called to help when the abortion staff suspected that her uterus had been perforated.
The woman was experiencing significant pain even though fentanyl had been administered to her prior to the abortion. First trimester surgical abortions, which are the most common, usually take 3-5 minutes to complete.
