SUPREME COURT DENIES CERTIORARI ON TWO F.A.C.E. CASES
WASHINGTON, DC -- The U. S. Supreme could denied certiorari April 16 in two cases being prosecuted by The Counselor Corps.
In Raney v. Aware Woman, No. 00-1268, certiorari was denied without comment.
In Roe, II v. Aware Woman, No. 00-1301, certiorari was denied before judgement. A decision has been pending before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals since November 3, 2000 oral arguments on the matter as to whether or not Jane Roe, II can proceed anonymously in her case against Aware Woman. Jane Roe, II is the first abortion patient in the history to be denied anonymity in the federal court system. The Supreme Court has said in this decision that Jane Roe, II must continue to wait (it's been over 5 months) on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. See below clip from Jane Roe,II' s Complaint to see what happened to her.
These cases are two of 6 petitions for certiorari made to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding application of the FACE law. The entire history of these and the other 4 petitions, including other court documents, can be accessed at http://www.forerunner.com/cc/court/index.html

16. When the abortionist had barely started, Jane Roe, II felt extreme, excessive pain in her abdomen unlike any pain she had ever felt before. When Jane Roe, II told the abortionist's helpers about the pain in her stomach, defendants' staff looked at one another with horrified looks on their faces, saying nothing.
17. Immediately Jane Roe, II knew that the abortion was going terribly wrong. "Mom", " Mom", she started calling in a loud desperate voice. She then demanded that an ambulance be called to take her to the emergency room at the local hospital.
18. Instead of calling an ambulance, defendants' staff forcibly held Jane Roe, II on the table causing multiple bruises on her arms in the process. Jane Roe, II was now afraid for her life.
19. Defendant William P. Egherman continued the abortion as four other of defendants' employees held Jane Roe, II on the table against her will, preventing her escape from the facility.
20. Jane Roe, II continued her desperate struggling and very loud vocal demands that an ambulance be called. She begged the abortionist to stop, saying that she felt severe pain. Even though the abortionist had been told to stop several times, William P. Egherman again inserted an instrument into the plaintiff's vagina to continue the abortion. Jane Roe, II demanded that he stop. At this time she felt pain in her back. Members of the staff were attempting to insert an IV but were unable to locate a vein. The abortionist stopped what he was doing inside her and attempted to insert the IV needle. Jane Roe, II continued begging for an ambulance. Defendants' employees finally did call an ambulance, but much serious damage had already been done to their patient.
