According to AIPNEWS.com correspondents who are on the ground at Notre Dame, Norma McCorvey, the "Roe" in Roe v Wade, was NOT arrested on campus as she and others prayed and protested the honors which are being bestowed by the Catholic institution's leaders on pro-abortion politician Barack Obama tomorrow.
Apparently there were more than twenty pro-life witnesses who were taken into custody, but Norma was not among them.
We will be updating this story as more information becomes available.

AIPNEWS would like to apologize to our readers for having jumped the gun on Norma's arrest earlier.
Norma McCorvey was not arrested although she did enter the campus. She emerged a short while later. I do not have further details yet on this.
Apparently Dr. Keyes has not yet been released.
Father Weslin was arrested again. Rescue pioneer Joan Andrews Bell was arrested. Joan entered an abortion camp in Pensacola during the eighties and disabled an abortion suction machine. She spent 18 months in solitary confinement in a Florida prison for this.
Father Weslin, Joan and one other brave witness all took the helpless fetal position of the unborn at their arrest and wewre carried off on stretchers.
The sidewalks at the glistening polished gates of the campus are now swelled with high numbers of protesters now that the weekend is here.

The headline and story have been fixed accordingly. I've now talked to sources who saw Norma depart the grounds without being detained, and sources at the jail confirm that she was not among the detainees.
