Rest In Peace.

Supreme Court Justice Rehnquist was an incredible man and a true intellectual. I will always admire him for his dissent in Roe v. Wade.

A few facts regarding Roe v. Wade that you may or may not be aware. Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of the case is an active pro-lifer now. In her autobiography, "Won By Love," she describes how she was used by the pro-choice movement and was told to lie about being raped. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist who was a leader in NARAL during Roe v. Wade, is now an active pro-lifer. He admits that NARAL lied about polls taken a the time and about the number of illegal abortions being performed at the time and lied about the number of women dying of illegal abortion. Read about that here.

Basically, it is a fact that Roe was based on lies.

Rehnquist couldn't have known that at the time of course, but his dissent marked the beginning of a long and distinguished career of common sense and common decency.
