Norma McCorvey who is better known as Jane Roe in the famous abortion case Roe v. Wade that helped to legalize abortion in the United States, along with Doe v.Bolton, on January 23, 1973 died today. Norma admits that Roe was based on lies. Lies from her, lies from Sarah Weddington (one of the attorneys involved in the case) and lies from SCOTUS themselves who believed they had the right to take the lives of 60 million innocent children.
One of the lies that Norma told originally is that she was gang raped and that she wanted an abortion because of it. She never had an abortion, however. She put the baby up for adoption. Norma would repent for all work in the pro-choice industry including Roe and her less than truthful statements prior the court decision. She would become Catholic and spend the rest of her days trying to get Roe overturned.
They “were looking for somebody, anybody, to use to further their own agenda,” McCorvey said. “I was their most willing dupe.”
“For their part, my lawyers lied to me about the nature of abortion,” she went on. “Weddington convinced me, ‘It’s just a piece of tissue. You just missed your period.'” Roe dies
Roe tried to get her case overturned based on the new evidence that abortion adversely affected women: The high court’s justices, without comment, declined to hear an appeal of a federal appeals court decision throwing out McCorvey’s Rule 60 case. A Rule 60 motion allows an original litigant in a lawsuit to ask a court to overturn its decision if new information is discovered in the case.
McCorvey’s new information consisted of thousands of affidavits from women who had abortions and regret their decision. The women say their abortions subjected them to considerable emotional and physical damage. That was in 2005.
It is interesting that her counterpart of sorts, Sandra Cano, who was part the Doe vs. Bolton case that gave use abortion all nine of pregnancy, also didn’t originally want an abortion and was lied to by her lawyers, she started fighting from the very beginning against the law that also bared her name and ended up dying without having any success either in 2014.
Despite Norma McCorvey hard work in the pro-life community and even writing a book called Won by Love and starting a pro-life initiative called Roe No More she didn’t get her dream to see the law baring her name overturned. She died of cardiac arrest on Saturday, February 18th, 2017. Norma, we promise to continue on where you left off, fighting for the lives of unborn children.
