Supreme Incongruity: Chief Justice Warren Burger's daughter is Pro-Life

Dawn Eden, author of the book, "The Thrill of the Chaste", and the blog, "The Dawn Patrol", encountered a pro-life volunteer in Washington D.C. who was there for the Pro-Life March tomorrow. The volunteer, Mary Margaret, is a convert to Catholicism and is the daughter of Chief Justice Warren Burger of the U.S. Supreme Court, a St Paul native, who presided over the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Abortions at any time during the gestation of the fetus were approved on a 7 to 2 vote of the justices (if that incongruous word might be used).

Dawn's post is HERE.

It is extremely interesting that "Jane Roe", the plaintiff in the case, whose real name is Norma McCorvey, also became a Catholic convert and is also now a pro-life activist.
