Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the infamous Roe v. Wade case that allowed unlimited abortions, visited the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to urge the Congressional leader to support efforts to make the health care bills in the House abortion neutral.
McCorvey joined with two dozen pro-life advocates at Pelosi’s office on Tuesday but got no further than an aide and was not able to meet with Pelosi herself.
After getting the aide to write down a note meant for Pelosi, McCorvey spoke with the media and said Pelosi should not receive communion because she is a pro-abortion Catholic.
"[Pelosi] shouldn’t be allowed to take communion," the recent Catholic convert said.
"What I said was that Nancy Pelosi, since I’m a Catholic [like Pelosi], should not receive Holy Communion because she’s pro-abortion and she doesn’t deserve to receive the Holy Eucharist since she believes in killing children," McCorvey added, according to OneNewsNow.
McCorvey also spoke with CNS News and said, No abortion is to be paid for with tax-funded dollars. Its against the laws of God."
McCorvey also said she regrets her role in the case that has resulted in 50 million abortions.
"Roe versus Wade is a bad law and I’m sorry that I ever did it," she said. "But I’ve been healed and I’m a Catholic now, and I know my place in the pro-life movement.
Missy Smith, president and founder of Women Against the Killing and Exploitation of Unprotected Persons (WAKE UP) and Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society joined McCorvey for the protest.
