'I began a journey from pro-choice to pro-life.'

One of my all-time favorite lecturers was Sarah Weddington, the attorney who successfully argued the Roe v. Wade decision. She was articulate, gracious, funny, smart and THE FEMINIST ICON….
… [A] group of students and I took her to dinner…. Over dessert, I asked, “whatever happened to Roe [Norma McCorvey]?”
Sarah’s gracious demeanor and beautiful smile changed instantaneously.
“She’s a stupid piece of white trash. She’s pro-life and a Christian,” she snarled[,] throwing in a few decidedly ungracious and unrepeatable curse words. “She’s a piece of trash. She was stupid when we found her and she’s worse now.”
I quickly paid the check and the evening ended. Her words and her demeanor hung in the air that night and honestly, I have never been able to forget them.
And that, right there, was the end of a chapter. I would no longer blindly follow a feminist agenda that defined progress on the backs of dead babies.
I began a journey from pro-choice to pro-life. Why? Because Roe v. Wade, the decision that supposedly was the rallying cry for all feminists, was achieved by taking advantage of a “stupid piece of trash[,]” not fighting for the rights of all women.
