The Story of Norma McCorvey (aka Jane Roe)


The Story of Norma McCorvey (aka Jane Roe) is a redemption story. Jane Roe, of course, is the name of the plaintiff used in the case that challenged the Texas abortion law. It went all the way up to the US Supreme Court, and, in 1973, Roe v. Wade overturned all the state laws that made abortion illegal. 

The case was a landmark in many ways. It was a stunning display of lack of judicial restraint, in effect legislating from the bench in violation of the constitutional principle of separation of powers. It was hailed as a resounding victory for women’s rights. It opened the floodgate that has resulted in millions and millions of abortions.

Millions of unborn babies lives have been ended as a result of the work of two attorneys and one willing pawn in the life and death struggle of choice. Norma McCorvey was willing, but she was more of a pawn than a participant. She was a hurting, desperate confused woman who was used for political expediency. If not her, it would have been someone else.

But the story did not end there. Obviously, Roe v. Wade had significant consequences for a nation. For Norma McCorvey, who had to live with those consequences that she could not reconcile within her, the story is a redemptive one. If you have not heard it before, it is worth your time.

    This is not true. She abused drugs and alcohol long before this case went to court. That is why her mother took away her daughter.

    “Norma McCorvey, who had to live with those consequences that she could not reconcile within her, and turned to min numbing drugs to cope, the story is a redemptive one.
