Roe v. Wade Namesake Dies
The woman behind the 1973 controversial Roe v. Wade abortion case, Norma McCorvey (known as Jane Roe for protection during the trial) died on Saturday at age 69 at an assisted living facility in Katy, TX. When she filed the lawsuit, she was looking for the right to legally and safely end unsafe or unwanted pregnancies, a right that was not given in Texas. The case was hailed as a win for pro-choice and women’s rights proponents and a disgraceful legalization of murder of the unborn for pro-life advocates. After living on the margins of society for a while, she changed her mind and was baptized a born-again Christian, taking up the fight to reverse Roe v. Wade.
