In what was advertised as a speech but quickly turned into a Q&A between McCorvey and anti-abortion activist Randall Terry, the former pro-choice advocate, a woman of few words, wasted not a one, delivering caustic one-liners to a crowd of several dozen pro-life activists gathered at the State Theatre in downtown South Bend.
Asked her opinion of The Most Rev. John D’Arcy, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, she said he needed to “get up off his behind and do something” to prevent Obama from speaking at Sunday’s commencement.
