Sandra Cano, “Mary Doe” in Supreme Court Abortion Case, Dies

Sandra Cano's Facebook page

Saying she had been duped into Doe v Bolton, she fought to overturn her own case

“She regretted not having more intelligent questions about what was going on in the beginning,” Slattery said.

"She was deceived, the whole country was deceived," Father Pavone said. "She was totally sincere. There was not an ounce of deception in her body or her spirit."

In 2006, without comment, the high court denied Cano’s appeal. 

At the time, she told the National Catholic Register, “It’s a nightmare to be connected to a case that I never wanted to be connected to. Doe v. Bolton allows abortion up to the ninth month. This case takes children’s lives.”

Cano is pictured above in an undated photo, at left, with Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the early proponent of legal abortion who later fought against it, and Norma McCorvey.
