Norma McCorvey, who first became known as “Jane Roe” in the infamous abortion case Roe v. Wade, became a pro-life champion as she dedicated her life to overturning the Supreme Court’s disastrous decision in Roe v. Wade, the 1970 abortion case filed on her behalf to overturn the nation’s abortion laws. Supporting Article
We always note that the pro-life cause is a movement of converts — and there are few conversions that were so surprising as that of Norma McCorvey, who died today at the age of 69. Norma McCorvey was the woman at the center of Roe v. Wade, the case that made abortion legal in the United States. She was “Roe” — the anonymous woman who sued the state of Texas, which would not permit her to have an abortion.
Following the infamous Supreme Court ruling in her case, she lived a troubled life and ended up in the abortion industry. But it was while she was working at an abortion center that she experienced her conversion. Not only did she become a Christian, but she rejected abortion advocacy and became pro-life.
