From Abortion "Pawn" to Pro-Life Warrior: Sandra Cano Has Died

From Abortion "Pawn" to Pro-Life Warrior: Sandra Cano Has Died

Atlanta, Georgia - Sadly, Sandra Cano, the "Doe" in the 1973 Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court case, died yesterday at a Georgia hospital after suffering from complications to throat cancer.

"We have lost an irreplaceable voice for truth and justice in America," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "Sandra worked most of her life to expose the lies that were the foundation of 'Doe' and undo an unjust decision in which she was an unwilling part. While we are saddened by her loss, we rejoice that her faith has ensured that she is resting now in the loving arms of her Savior."

At 22 and pregnant with her fourth child, Sandra Cano sought legal assistance from an attorney that she said duped her into thinking her case would center on equal pay for women. Cano never considered an abortion despite her dire circumstances and was at one point forced to flee her home in Georgia for Oklahoma to avoid an abortion that has been scheduled for her by her attorney. She always considered herself an unwilling "pawn" used by the unscrupulous to advance their radical abortion agenda.
