  • 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...

    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. She tells her story in her book Won By Love.McCorvey had a lot to say about what working in an abortion clinic was like.  The first clinic she worked at, A-Z, was horribly run and filthy. Here, she describes what she saw in that clinic:  I started working at the A to Z clinic in January 1995, and it was a health disaster waiting to happen.

    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.”...

    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...
