Norma “Jane Roe” McCorvey, Pro-Life Warrior has Passed Away

Norma McCorvey, who is better known to America as “Jane Roe” of the landmark abortion case Roe V. Wade has passed away at the age of 69.

McCorvey’s fame as “Roe” was a heartbreaking reminder for her of who she once was, but a symbol of hope that even the most hardened hearts could change. In 1995, some 20 years after the Roe decision, McCorvey shocked the nation by announcing that she now opposed abortion. From that moment on she became a warrior in the pro-life movement, giving every effort to save as many lives as she could. Her “conversion” in the abortion fight coincided with her conversion to Christianity and the realization that she had no right to take life where God had given it. “I don’t believe in abortion even in an extreme situation. If the woman is impregnated by a rapist, it’s still a child. You’re not to act as your own God,” she told the AP in 1998.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of Susan B. Anthony List, memorialized McCorvey on Twitter:

Others also took to Twitter to remember her: 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
