'Mary Roe' Steps Forward on Abortion & the "health of the mother"
Jane Doe and Mary Roe
Sandra Cano, the 'Jane Doe' in the landmark Doe v. Bolton abortion case filed an Appeal with Supreme Court to have the 1973 abortion-on-demand decision reconsidered and overturned.
Roe v. Wade made it a constitutional right to have an abortion. Doe v. Bolton added the "health of the mother" exception which made abortion legal during any time of the pregnancy, including all the way up to birth.
The Justice Foundation, a pro-family legal group in Texas, is involved in this attempt which is similar to the one made by Norma McCorvey, the 'Jane Roe' in Roe v. Wade.
