It has been one of the greatest honors of The Justice Foundation to represent Sandra Cano, the former Mary Doe of Doe v. Bolton in her legal efforts to reverse the Doe v. Bolton case. The Justice Foundation represented her from February 2000 until the date of her death on September 30, 2014.
Recently a memorial service was held in her honor in Atlanta, Georgia, her hometown. Many of you knew Sandra personally and I felt you would very much like to see this tribute to Sandra. Many of you who did not know Sandra personally, but only know her as an historical figure, would be extremely interested in seeing this presentation.

The first presenter is Sybil Lash, the author of the book about Sandra's life "Supreme Deception" that tells the story of the fraud upon the Court that was Sandra's case and a bit about her life. If you would like copy of Sandra's story in the Doe v Bolton case, "Supreme Deception," you can purchase this book by contacting Sybil Lash at "firstname.lastname@example.org." Price for one copy is $15.00 and this includes shipping and handling.
I am the second presenter starting with when The Justice Foundation entered Sandra's life and why we collected the thousands of testimonies of the women of Operation Outcry to help Sandra Cano clear her name at the Supreme Court and present the legal arguments to cancel "Roe" and "Doe." If it had not been for the courage of Sandra Cano and Norma McCorvey, the Roe of Roe v. Wade, in agreeing to allow us to take their cases back to the United States Supreme Court, we would not have collected the testimonies of the women of Operation Outcry. We salute and honor her.

The third speaker is The Most Reverend Dr. Foley Beach, Archbishop of the Anglican Church of North American. He is also the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the South. Sandra was baptized in their church as an adult and this is a bishop who has led many Anglican churches to form a new union over the pro-life issue and the ordination of bishops and consecration of same-sex marriages in the Episcopalian denomination. Here is Arch Bishop Foley's quote about those matters: "The Church which taught me to confess and repent of my sins has now embraced and endorsed certain sins which have become culturally accepted. The actions of the 2003 General Convention in approving the consecration of a non-celibate homosexual person to be a bishop in the Church, and its approval of a method by which liturgies may be used for same-sex unions in the Church is the presenting issue of a much deeper theological and moral problem within the Church."
I hope that you find it interesting. I believe it involves a great deal of history and information about our movement and how we got where were are today. It should be of interest to the courageous ladies of Operation Outcry and general supporters of The Justice Foundation. If you listen all the way to the end you can hear Sandra's dying wish and join with her in fulfilling it.
Advancing Life, Liberty and Justice in Him,
