  • Five Facts About Norma McCorvey of Roe vs. Wade You Probably Didn’t Know

    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...

    While most pro-lifers know that Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade, is now pro-life, fewer know that she worked in two abortion clinics before her conversion.

    Exclusive: Janet Porter joins pro-life leaders as they stand with Rep. Todd Akin Want to know why the Republican Party is in such trouble? I believe it comes down to one word: courage. When Democrats misspeak, we make them vice president. When Republicans misspeak, Republicans are the first in line to throw them under the bus. When Rep. Todd Akin stood for protecting all innocent human life in a recent interview, he used a word with more than one meaning. He used the word “legitimate” before the word “rape” to mean “real,” “forcible,” a tragic event that “really took place.”...
