Unintentional plaintiff fights to overturn abortion ruling.

"ATLANTA -- Thirty years ago, Sandra Cano was the anonymous Georgia plaintiff 'Mary Doe' in the companion lawsuit to Roe v. Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized abortion.

Today, Cano is again a plaintiff, only now a very public one. She is seeking to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling and her case, Doe v. Bolton.

'Abortion has hurt millions of women, and I regret my role,' Cano, now 55, said in a telephone interview. 'That's not the legacy I want to leave. I should not be doomed to a case that is against my belief and wouldn't have been a part of.'

Cano filed a motion last month in U.S. District Court in Atlanta seeking to overturn the rulings in both her case and Roe v. Wade. In court documents, Cano said she never intended to be the anonymous Georgia plaintiff Mary Doe. She contends her name was used by Atlanta Legal Aid after she, while pregnant, approached the law clinic seeking legal advice for a divorce. Cano said she was not seeking to fight the state's law on abortions.

While her lawyer and mother pressed her to get an abortion, Cano said, she fled to Oklahoma to avoid having one."

Interesting. I didn't know until I read this article that Cano herself did not want an abortion.

How repellent it is when people pressure vulnerable pregnant women to abort.
