Archive for the ‘Biography of Norma McKorvey: Jane Roe of Roe V. Wade’ Category

A brief biography and commentary of “Jane Roe” in the 1973 landmark case for abortion.

Norma Leah Nelson McCorvey born September 22, 1947 in Simmesport Louisiana.

She would become one of the most controversial figures in American Justice.  The landmark case of Roe v. Wade as “Jane Roe” in 1973.

Norma would have a long battle from pro-choice to pro-life.  She was befriended by Pro-Life Activist Flip Benham from the Pro-Life group Operation Rescue.  She would be baptized a Christian and go on to be a Roman Catholic.  In her autobiography she has professed to be a lesbian and surprisingly enough has since recanted this lifestyle.

Allegedly she has stated she was a pawn of two very ambitious lawyers for this case in the Supreme Court.  One Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee.  The case would challenge and attempt to overturn a  Texas State law prohibiting abortion.

Eventually she would grow to regret this decision.  The story is that Norma stated she was raped when she was around 21 years.  She has since stated that this is a lie.  Her child was never aborted and gave birth to a baby girl who was eventually adopted.

She has admitted as others have that abortion procedure has harmful consequences towards women.  Her petition to the Supreme Court to overturn Roe in 2005 has been rejected.

Today May 17th 2009 at Notre Dame a protest is taking place because the of the implications of a sitting President to receive an Honorary Degree from a Catholic University because of his stance on abortion is considered null and void on record at the Catholic Conference of Bishops of the United States.

Obama has stated that healthy, peaceful disagreement is a good thing and I agree.

At this historical date May 17,  2009 while writing this commentary 30 brave pro-lifers are sitting in jail from a peaceful march on the campus of Notre Dame University at Indiana for protesting and trespassing.  Many of them laypeople and famous alike.  One is Dr. Alan Keyes, political activist and diplomat.

President Obama and others want this barbaric practice and sacrifice of innocent lives rare but we cant have it both ways.  We cant keep sending tax dollars overseas for so called reproductive rights and not find sensible solutions to our problems as well.  Especially in these uncertain economic times.

According to the Pro-Life movement abortion not only degrades a woman’s dignity it also harms her physically, emotionally and mentally.  The question is what rights do the unborn have? Sonograms are proving  a child is in the womb and its life.  Places like Rachael’s Vineyard are speaking and counseling with those who are both male and female suffering from post abortive negative fallout.  Can we keep looking the other way?

The slogan today seems to be and I agree, “Women and Men deserve better than abortion.”  Since 1973 over 50,000,000+ (Not including the count around the world.) babies have been aborted and one question I have asked is, who have we aborted?  Did we abort someone who would find the cure for cancer, AIDS or even the next peacemaker of the Middleast? Someone’s future partner in marriage?  Our world leaders–who will it be in the future to solve these economic crises that crop up on occasion? The list goes on.

Pro-Choice movement wants reproductive rights but what will the cost be to America and the world at large for future generations? Do they understand the whole picture? There is the Pro and the Con but whose side has the better argument for a better future for America?

Only the future will tell out on the issue of Life.

This is what is going on in China.  We also underwrite and support it at the United Nations.   This is not the American Way.  This is not true feminine genius and women’s true rights.  Susan B. Anthony is someone we all know about.  She was for women’s rights which is what Im for but not at the sacrifice of life.

Women should be the upholder of life everywhere.  We should stand in solidarity with women and children all over the world.  Im a right to lifer.  I will never change this stance.  I am not a terrorist and like Susan B. Anthony and others from the past and into the future who support life this is where its at.

It is a human being in the womb.  The baby is not a toaster or a material object.  It is the beginning of human life.  We need to rethink what is going on in this world everywhere.  The basic human denial of real freedom and human rights everywhere.

As I paraphrase one of the greatest women of our world, Morther Teresa said that aborting children is like nuclear war.  Norma McKorvey who was Jane Roe in the landmark decision of 1973 to institute abortion into our culture has also changed her opinion and stance regarding this practice.

It has to be rethought and end.

This is one of the most beautiful Pro-Life stories I have ever encountered.  Im sure that there are a lot more out there equally so.  The respect for life is becoming a hot button issue among Americans today.  It is necessary and one that needs to be pondered in a deeper way.

Norma McKorvey and others like her who have come into the Right to Life Movement also must be studied.  After all Norma is Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade fame.  She has been an activist for sometime and a communicant of the Roman Catholic Church.  She has protested this unfair law and unfair practice to human life.   She like many others who have walked into the “shadow of death” are now coming on board to the sanctity of life.

We invite every American to  a change of heart and mind in all honesty on this subject.  So please read Julia Holcomb’s story and also keep an open mind to real life.

Julia Holcomb thanks for your witness, testimony and story.  Thanks for coming home.  Thank you for helping others.

See Julia’s story as she tells it in her own words:

If you get the chance please educate yourself about the Culture of Life which we are trying to preserve in these difficult times.
