  • The Untold Story: Abortion Activists Exploited Norma McCorvey to Legalize 60 Million Abortions

    LIFE NEWS ^ | Feb. 20, 2017 | Father Frank Pavone
    Norma McCorvey, who passed away Saturday, didn’t go see attorney Sarah Weddington out of any desire to legalize abortion. She literally went to see her because she was hungry. They met together in a pizza parlor. Norma didn’t even know the meaning of the word “abortion.” She never got the help she was seeking for her third pregnancy, and ended up making an adoption plan for the baby girl who was born. She never appeared in court, and she found out about the outcome of Roe vs. Wade like everyone else did — in the morning paper. Having been exploited...

    Norma McCorvey, the Jane Roe of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, died Saturday outside Houston at age 69, The Washington Post reports. McCorvey was 22 when she sought a way out for an unwanted pregnancy, becoming Jane Roe, the pseudonymous plaintiff of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that established a constitutional right to an abortion. She died at an assisted-living facility in Katy due to a heart ailment, journalist Joshua Prager, who is working on a book about the case, confirmed her death to The Post.

    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 woman’s life. 2. In 1969, McCorvey was 22 years old, divorced, homeless, and pregnant for the...

    WASHINGTON, January 22, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A series of speeches in the US Congress marked the legalisation of abortion in the US by the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision of 1973. A group of pro-life representatives urged President Obama to pursue pro-life policies, such as retaining the Mexico City Policy that restricts funding for international organisations that promote abortion overseas. They also denounced the new president’s stated intention to sign the Freedom of Choice Act that would lift all state restrictions on abortion in the country.

    About an hour ago Norma McCorvey, a.k.a "Jane Roe" from the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, formally endorsed Ron Paul at the Phoenix Park hotel in Washington. Why didn't she endorse a frontrunner like Mike Huckabee? Thank the grassroots: She saw a newspaper ad in Nevada, bought by Paul supporters, using the analogy of the frog and the pot of boiling water to demonstrate what was happening to America. "It touched my heart." That was three weeks ago, and McCorvey keynoted a pro-life Paul rally in Nevada on January 12th, but the campaign made the official announcement today before Paul...

    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. Banning the procedure - an act of infanticide where a scissors is jammed into the base of the infant's skull, a tube inserted and its brain sucked...

    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...
