Our friend/reader Michelle sent this along. (Thanks, Michelle.) I post this more for what Norma said in the interview quoted, than anything. Quite telling about why her lawyer "needed" her.

COME MEET "ROE"
Planned Parenthood has afforded you an opportunity to take part in an event that showcases the real story behind Roe v. Wade.
When the Houston Coalition for Life learned that Planned Parenthood had invited Sarah Weddington, the pro-abortion attorney who argued and won Roe v. Wade, to be the keynote speaker at their fall abortion fundraiser, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to counter this message with the true story of Roe v. Wade.
While Sarah Weddington will speak on "Save Roe," we've invited Norma McCorvey, the "Roe" of Roe v. Wade, to set the record straight by telling what really happened. The Houston Coalition for Life will hold a Press Conference coinciding with the Planned Parenthood fundraiser on the public property outside of the abortion chain's event at the Hilton Post Oak.
Norma will speak about the lies that were told to her by her pro-abortion attorneys concerning the implications of her case as she did with World Net Daily:In a 1994 New York Times interview, McCorvey describes her meeting with the young attorneys, with whom she had a rocky relationship.When: Saturday, October 15, 2005 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
"Sarah (Weddington) sat right across the table from me at Columbo's pizza parlor, and I didn't know [then] that she had had an abortion herself," she said. "When I told her then how desperately I needed one, she could have told me where to go for it. But she wouldn't because she needed me to be pregnant for her case. I set Sarah Weddington up on a pedestal like a rose petal. But when it came to my turn, well, Sarah saw these cuts on my wrists, my swollen eyes from crying, the miserable person sitting across from her, and she knew she had a patsy. She knew I wouldn't go outside of the realm of her and Linda. I was too scared. It was one of the most hideous times of my life."

"Abortion chain." I don't think I've ever heard PP called that before, but it fits.
