Meet Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade

For You From The Word

Make them holy by your truth. (John 17:17, NLT)

For You To Think About

In January we commemorate the Sanctity of Human Life

“Jane Roe” is a pseudonym for the real-life Norma McCorvey (b. 1948).

Norma McCorvey

Norma McCorvey

Norma did not initiate legal action. She was 21 years old, pregnant, and seeking an abortion, which was illegal at that time in Texas (except to save the mother’s life). She was identified as a face for the pro-choice movement by two lawyers who filed suit in Norma’s name, stipulating that states could not regulate abortion laws during the first trimester.

Norma never appeared in court. She discovered the verdict to the suit when reading the outcome in the newspaper the following day.

Norma never had an abortion. She carried all three of her children to term and placed them with adoptive parents.

Norma has rejected abortion. She worked in an abortion clinic until her dramatic conversion to the Christian faith in the 1990s.

Norma is pro-life. Today, Norma lives in Texas and works tirelessly to overturn the legislation that bears her name.

For You to Pray

Heavenly Father,

Move in our nation to respect the sanctity of human life. Amen.
