    Perhaps you haven’t heard much regarding Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade. If you’re like me, only 8 years ago did I know that the famous leading plaintiff in the case that legalized abortion in the United States is actually a woman by the name of Norma McCorvey. “Jane Roe” was her given pseudonym for the case. On September 13, 2008, I attended an Alabama Citizens for Life banquet in Montgomery, Alabama. There I would hear Norma McCorvey’s story for the very first time. I hung on every word as she told us the truth about her part in the...
  • Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade Never Had An Abortion, Her Daughter is 46

    There is a 46-year-old woman, born in Texas, who should be dead right now. In fact, she should have never been born. Forty-three years ago, the Supreme Court decided that the Texas law that prevented Jane Roe from ending the life of her unborn daughter was unconstitutional. But by the time the Supreme Court issued its decision in 1973, she had already been born and adopted by a family—likely not knowing that all that ink spilled in Roe v. Wade was about her. Norma McCorvey is “Jane Roe.” She claimed then that her pregnancy was the result of a rape,...

    This month is the forty-second anniversary of the legal decision, Roe v. Wade, in which the Supreme Court eliminated the abortion laws of all 50 states. Here are five facts about the plaintiff behind the case that transformed America: 1. Jane Roe was the legal pseudonym for Norma McCorvey the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade. McCorvey filed court documents against Henry WADE, the district attorney of Dallas County from 1951 to 1987, who enforced a Texas law that prohibited abortion, except to save a womans life. 2. In 1969, McCorvey was 22 years old, divorced, homeless, and pregnant for the...

Why didn't she endorse a frontrunner like Mike Huckabee?

    As the plaintiff in that infamous Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade, my life has been inextricably tied to the abortion issue. I once told a reporter, "This issue is the only thing I live for. I live, eat, breathe, think everything about abortion." Thirty-four years later, I am 100% pro-life. The Supreme Court's recent decision to uphold the federal ban on partial-birth abortion is the first step in overturning Roe vs. Wade.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a challenge to its landmark 1973 ruling legalizing abortion by the woman once known as "Jane Roe," who was at the center of the historic U.S. case. Without comment, justices declined to hear the appeal from Norma McCorvey and thus dodged a highly charged political debate for now. McCorvey's protest of Texas' abortion ban led to the Roe v. Wade ruling establishing a constitutional right to abortion. McCorvey, who says she now regrets her role in the decision, argued in court filings that the case should be heard again in light...

Jane tells about having looked up the term "abortion" in a dictionary after the landmark decision was handed down in her now-famous case against Henry Wade.
